Inspired by a novel which is set in a two-dimensional world called “Flatland: a Romance of Many Dimensions” by Edwin Abbot, Turkish artist Aydin Buyukas has turned images of Istanbul upside down and inside out.
His work transforms sites like Sultan Ahmet Square, the grand bazaar and the city’s mosques into warped collages that distort the viewer’s perspective of space.
Neighborhoods are depicted doubling in half, with city streets and sights stretching into the sky and folding backwards onto themselves.
Drone photography and 3D software constructed the digital landscapes
Buyukas said: “We live in places that most of the times don’t draw our attention, places that transform our memories, places that the artist gives another dimension; where the perceptions that generally crosses our minds will be demolished and new ones will arise.”
