The installation locations are all spaces that the urban life passes through: outside of buildings, sometimes the insides, walls, the pavement, abudments… These, the cities indeed, are spaces that these animals would normally not exist, nor would they ever want to. One can’t think of a rhino or a moose to calmly just pass through Kadife Street, or a bear quietly strolling down the Yüksek Kaldırım staircase in broad daylight. There are just a few species that have managed to adapt to the city habitat, cats, dogs, some birds, insects and bacteria. There isn’t much chance we could encounter any other creature anyways. We would not let them.
The singular animals that are installed on the walls are actually each a single moment of a continuous inertia. The passer by on the street does not only see “an animal”, but also gets to witness “a moment”. When asked about life or vitality, we can’t yet talk about non carbon based beings or a habitat other than planet earth.
Motion is at the very heart of life.. Vitality walks, grows, grows ...
Every single frame of the movement of the animals is created individually, and make up the cohesive walking animation when watched back to back thus bringing motion and life to the image of the animal.
