The darkly surreal, but visually striking dream landscapes of Christopher Nolan’s masterpiece ‘Inception’ defied the laws of physics, instilling ambiguity among its audiences, and prompting many to ask questions that to this day remain unanswered. The domain of physical existence is a curious thing.
The images that Aydın Büyüktaş has brought together for his latest series ‘Flatland’ are anything but flat. Instead, they are strongly reminiscent of Nolan’s ‘dreamscapes’ – multidimensional, gravity-defying, and mind-blowing. Using a combination of drone footage and 3D software, Büyüktaş transforms the Turkish city of Istanbul as we know it into something we could imagine only in our dreams.
