I Move is an ongoing project used original naval maps as a main material. When the project start, it begins with manipulating of maps according to fictional and memorial stories. Map indicates moving, travelling, navigating by this mean, using naval maps referring to the state of navigating without moving. The idea of this project is that focusing on travelling without moving by using map as metaphor. This project is inquiring the experience of being in different places, imagining yourself at those spot and memories at the same time by using digital collage of istanbul and elsewhere maps. Map describes the relationship between an place and a representation of that place, as in the relation between a geographical territory and the one who is living in it.
