"Invisible Istanbul" uses smartphone augmented reality to overlay virtual artworks via GPS positioning onto the physical space of specific sites in Istanbul and the Biennial, creating surrealistic and poetic juxtapositions between real and virtual within the context of the hidden urban dynamics of Istanbul.Viewers become as photographers: the act of viewing or making a screenshot of the objects at a specific site and time reifies the virtual objects into artworks, revealing hidden forces within the city not visible to the naked eye."Invisible Istanbul" is part of the ISEA2011 Istanbul exhibition Uncontainable, an official Parallel Program of the 12th Istanbul Biennale.
