Corridor of Memories

Video Installation | 4' 57" | 2015

A game space that could entail poetry. 
"Deniz Tortum’s single channel video Corridor of Memories Walkthrough, stands at the intersection of game and video art, which enables a sort of slacktivism, inviting the audience to watch but not to participate. In this “anti-game”, the artist walks between hills made of his and his poet friends' images, and on the left hand corner he appears as a regular gamer. The work explores the social implications of using computer-generated models. These models are able to provoke the relationship between a real world that is lost, and can be replaced by its representations made solely for computers/machines." 
- Ulya Soley, Curator
