When Christopher Nolan released “Inception” back in 2010, it blew our minds much like “The Matrix” did when it was released in 1999. Now, Turkish artist Aydın Büyüktaş takes us to Istanbul, and shows us the distant land of Turkey like we’ve never seen it before.
Utilizing aerial drone photography Aydın takes fantastic and mundane places and turns them all into mind-bending images that are hard to look away from. Whether it is a skate park, bus station, soccer field or even religious sites, each image grabs your attention.
Here is what Aydın had to say about the project, he has named “Flatland,” over on his OFFICIAL WEBSITE. “Aydin Büyüktas, inspired by the book of Edwin Abbat “Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions” created his series called “Flatland,” in which he sets the foundations of a dimension where a space of surprises creates a space that creates surprises.”
“We live in places that most of the times don’t draw our attention, places that transform our memories, places that the artists gives another dimension; where the perceptions that generally crosses our minds will be demolished and new ones will arise. These works aim to leave the viewer alone with a surprising visuality ironic as well, multidimensional romantic point of view.”
