This installation employs data consisting of traditional ornaments using the latest state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms. Orkhan designed a neural network computing system that processes 15,000 archived ornamental images from museums and libraries and creates new, unlimited combinations based on their similarities. The installation creates imaginary patterns that did not exist previously.
In Muraqqa, the artist has reproduced original miniature paintings and represented them as a digital linear story. The authentic traditional Muraqqa becomes a source for the construction of an alternative virtual replica. The artist has added his own stories to the original content and created a video installation. He sets the characters of the miniature in motion to play with plot development, while animated effects demonstrate its artificiality.
Globe seems motionless, but the slightest interference changes its direction. Through the sculpture’s sensitivity to movement, the artists share their belief that even a pawn on the international chessboard can propel Globe, and, thus, the world in new or desired directions.
The Slinky Effect, a Slinky jump over people’s heads. The Slinky represents the flow of news that we receive from social networks every second of the day. People communicate almost only through these flows, without gazing each other’s even if they are close; they became beings without empathy and have therefore a gray and uniform appearance.
Bubble Reflection conveys connection with the social networks and human relations, as well as the impact of the media devices on the human beings, on their mind. The anthropomorphic figures are perfectly aligned, in military order, while telematic circuits at this point have integrated in their organisms and are masters of their unconscious and their intimacy. They represent a hypnotized humanity; inhabitants of a planetary Metropolis whose empty heads passively welcome a virtual reality
Headlines considers media domination by focusing on the sway that headlines command. Made in the form of essay (textual and visual) Headlines etc… is partly a response to the media domination and a complex relation between images and time. As a poetic-philosophical perception of the contemporary world through the stream of images it will demonstrate how headlines became a language of addressing multicultural global movements of people and the transportation of ideas, which creates a new image of the world altogether.
