Introducing America As you’ve Never Seen it Before #Celebratephotography
Digitally manipulated photographs by Aydin Büyüktas, Via Featureshoot
As a continuation of his initial Flatland project, Istanbul-based photographer Aydin Büyüktas travelled to the USA at the end of 2016 to expand his collection of mind-bending images. Inspired by sci-fi writers, in particular Edwin Abbot’s 1884 novella Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions, he uses digital manipulation to transcend the limits of human vision and create his own way of seeing the world, or in his words a “multidimensional romantic point of view.”
Following two months of research, Büyüktas spent a month capturing photos with an aerial drone, flying his drone a total distance of 10,000 miles. To make the resulting images, he spent the next two months creating composites combining between 18-20 images in each one. In this series, baseball courts and highways replace the Turkish markets and striking landmarks of his previous work, however we still view the world from Büyüktas’ warped rollercoaster-like vision, which plunges us directly into the landscapes from vertiginous heights.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
