“History and Destruction in Istanbul/ Ghost Buildings” project certainly doesn’t aim at creating a nostalgia about the past, on the contrary, the present day is its main concern, as these destructions still continue today. The exhibition, the installations, the catalogue and the website will try to keep the memories of these destructions fresh, as well as to open them to discussion. In short the project will try to read Istanbul through its scars, scratches and cuts, and share the results with public.
nerdworking designed a multi-touch table technology to present detailed information about the buildings. Table is used for the project opening at Çırağan Kempinski which also has a destructive story in the past. It will be available to see and try in Ghosts Buildings exhibition from Nov 25th, besides other exhibition systems supported by nerdworking.
