Media Art Instal­la­tion „İzmir Moza­ic” — PORTIZMIR Inter­na­tion­al Con­tem­po­rary Art Tri­en­ni­al


The media art instal­la­tion is part of the PORTIZMIR Inter­na­tion­al Con­tem­po­rary Art Tri­en­ni­al. The instal­la­tion is locat­ed at Kon­ak Pier on Izmir Bay. The Turk­ish com­pos­er Mehmet Can Özer and the Ger­man media artists Axel Buether and Susa Pankrath have designed 12 moods of the Turk­ish metrop­o­lis Izmir. The atmos­pheres con­sist of fog, sounds, light and col­ors. Vis­i­tors can feel the dynam­ic change of atmos­pheres with all their sens­es. The images of the his­toric and mod­ern metrop­o­lis of Izmir arise again and again before the eyes and in the mind of the vis­i­tors.


The open­ing of the Media-Art-Instal­la­tion was on Fri­day, Feb­ru­ary 23, 2018 at Kon­ak Pier.
