City Synergy by Burcin Cem Arabacioglu
Burcin Cem Arabacioglu is a professional architect and an associate professor in the Department of Interior Architecture at the Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, Istanbul where he has been a faculty member since 2002. Besides being a member of the University, he is a designer and an artist. He is interested in fine-art photography and photo-graphic art. He mainly focuses on experimental photography where he likes to explore the synergy in between the ordinary real life objects. In his recent project called ‘City Synergy’ he photographically interrogates the multi-faceted similarities and discrepancies in the big city life. He explores the rhythm between the pieces of the city which transforms the city life from cacophony to harmony. In this project he carefully picked the hundreds of ordinary city objects to photograph which later gather together in a collage to expose a brand new relation abstracted from their original core. The creation process took many hours to find and photography the proper pieces around the city. The more the outcomes look simple the more they contain surprising details to explore in time.
