Cityscapes (2023- 2024)
6’33” loop

The video work titled Cityscapes allows viewers to observe various places of the city from the perspective of twelve monuments in Istanbul, which are, due to their historical significance and views, photographed or filmed endlessly on any given day. While a stationary camera captures seemingly ordinary angles at first glance, belonging to 12 different ‘heroes’, it allows the viewer to experience the city in almost life-sized dimensions, adding a new perspective to all these images. Cityscapes shares the unique perspective of the monument’s main character, making it accessible to everyone.
