Intersection was a site specific installation, constructed under the Galata Bridge, that combined simple lighting techniques with the complexity of water. It was constructed by using 1.6 km of elastic rope. The piece was created for Istanbul Design Week 2011.
Intersection’s designer, Tamer Nakışçı, says that the installation was an exploration of the connections between different times, techniques, dimensions and people; and how they actually intersect.
