This work includes,
2 structure(as prototype) // 1 video collage and 2 animation // 2 drawing
Top left: Yaka I
Bottom right: Yaka II
Yaka means in Turkish side. With the two A1 digital drawings, I tried to express the map of Istanbul from my way of looking.
The Path consists of 3 channel videos*, 2 drawings composition and 2 different stair structures**. The stair structures lost their function, resemble the city's (İstanbul) chaotic and endless structure and view.
The (stair) metaphor comes from the highway footbridges that I used often on the long way from my home to my university and work in the years 2014-2015 in Istanbul. On those footbridges, I also got my alienations from the city and I made the decision to move to Berlin. The structures are of an industrial form and seem nonpersonal. In spite of that, the stairs show the personal question of me ' Where I am between the urban transformation of İstanbul, the politics of Turkey and my daily&private life?' and its answers.
* The video and animations are shown in the loop.
** Until the real structures are made, they are exhibited as a 3D prototype.
