Places of Zeytinburnu
A region is an articulated language with all its historical and cultural layers. Therefore, speaking and understanding that language also means to establish connections between the layers. Like every other regions, Zeytinburnu has its own form and a language that expresses it.
What if we change the aspect of view?
The eastern picture art, miniature reminds the two-dimensional works of the different stories without perspective but told in an order. In this way, it offers to experience a structural analysis of these places by avoiding optical illusion. Green fields, social complexes, playgrounds and gardens reveal themselves through their borders. Faces of places independent from people can be read. These places come in sight with their most plain face and turn into relieving places.
