dc.description.abstract Galata / Karakoy: was a large-scale research project from the Institute for Design Research, University of the Arts Zurich. My contribution to this 2-year project was three site-specific urban installations in different parts of the city that reflected back on the development of Istanbul as a city over the past twenty years, a period when the population had moved from 2 million to 20 million. We worked with a series of maps. The installation used a system of back projection and multiple screens, working in often-hostile environment systems that had to be developed for high tolerance to a complex urban environment. Addressing issues of spatial location, dislocation and spatial drift, we search for the cultural differences in interpretation and the common ground laid before us. Tensions exist between the seemingly objective mapping of the physical space and the more subjective interpretation of the non-visible landscapes that co-exist in the same space. Rather than mapping the surface, we began to map spatially, reconstructing scenes of social interaction proximity and location. This matrix forms by applying a number of cartographic processes, ranging from conventional approaches of contour and cross-section to more artistic approaches, involving the appropriation of gps, video, google earth, data maps, sound maps and memory maps. The Installation redefined the space within the map and was a research process made visible through the medium of installation.
