Artist Turns His Photos of Istanbul Into Inception-like Dreamscapes (12 Photos)
Inspired by Edwin Abbat’s “Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions”, artist and photographer Aydın Büyüktaş has created a jarring series of photos in a project entitled, Flatland, in which he “sets the foundations of a dimension where a space of surprises creates a space that creates surprises.”
The artist uses photos of Istanbul he has taken, warping them into Inception-like dreamscapes that bend reality. On his website he adds:
“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. These works aim to leave the viewer alone with a surprising visuality, ironic as well [a] multidimensional romantic point of view”
In a separate series entitled Parallel Universes, Büyüktaş manipulates self-portraits where all directions mesh and coexist. To see more visual trickery, be sure to check out the links below.
