With a generous sponsorship of Samsung Turkey, I was able to spend five weeks in Istanbul in March and April 2010, to create a photography and video installation at SODA gallery. I photographed some rarely visited ruins in and around Istanbul, and printed eleven new images as a part of the larger Naked City Spleen series. Video was installed in a separate room from the main exhibition hall, and it could be seen only through a square opening on a wall. The wanderings in the city were mapped out in an unconventional way, and I created a large window display of the neighborhoods, in the spirit of Situationist maps.
