Abstract Maps

Toronto-based artistJazzberry Blue created this series of abstract maps portraying the world’s most famous cities: Los Angeles, London, Milan, and more. The self-taught traveling artist uses a combination of bold color palettes and geometric figures to give each map an abstract flare of its own.
From the organized city blocks of New York, to the chaotic streets of London, every print perfectly captures the essence each city.

Turkish multimedia artist Erdal Inci experiments with cloned motion in video to create awesomely hypnotic looping videos and gifs of himself moving through public spaces, sometimes carrying lights or other objects. Depending on the exposure, Inci sometimes appears to be no more than a shadow or isn’t visible at all, making his videos even more mysterious and dreamlike.

He states: “I realized that if you clone a recorded performance contiguously it will become perpetual. So that you can see all the time phases of the same performance in a small amount of time like 1 or 2 seconds. This gives you the chance of thinking like a choreographer with a mass crew or painter who fills its frame not in forms and colour but motion. At this point I could tell I am inspired by patterns in traditional arts & crafts , dance and repetition. Motion, performance and real environments are the outlines of the work.”
