“Flatland”
Aydın Büyüktaş, inspired by the book of  Edwin Abbat “Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions” created his series called “Flatland” , in which he sets the foundations of a dimension where a space of surprises creates a space that creates suprises. We live in places that most of the times don’t draw our attention, places that transform our memories, places that the artist gives another dimension; where the perceptions that generally crosses our minds will be demolished and new ones will arise.    These works aims to leave the viewer alone with a surprising visuality ironic as well,multidimensional romantic point of view.

_While I was reading “Hyperspace” the book of Michio Kaku, he was using examples from “Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions” of Edwin Abbot. I discovered the book like this. I was very impressed by the book written in 1884 exemplifying the difficulties in comprehending the way of interconnecting the dimensions and the inter-dimensional transition. The fact that the book tried to tell the inter-dimensional transition and the third dimension in second dimension corresponded to my inquiry about the third dimension. 

Biography:
Aydın Büyüktaş, who was born in Ankara in 1972, dropped out form Bilkent University Tourism Management Department because it was not his future dream. After moving to Istanbul in 2000's, he took charge in many awarded movies and advertising drives, while he is working for avant-garde companies such as Sinefekt and Makinefx after having improved himself in the fields of visual effect, 3D, animation and video. He started to give priority to freelance works after his character, which was designed by him in the form of 3D in 2008, gained international popularity. While he interested in Photography, he also has been continuing his academic education at the department of photography of Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University since 2012.

-When I became concerned with visual effect and animation in 2003-2004, the idea that I could perform surreal places that I saw in my dreams and I thought as of my childhood gradually started to occur on my mind. During my childhood and adolescence, I read science fiction series of writers such as Isaac Asimov and H.G. Wells and Scientific and Technical journals. These books made me question the issues such as wormholes, black holes, parallel universes, gravitation, bending of space and time. I guess it was the year 2006. While I was reading “Hyperspace” of Michio Kaku, I was obsessed by the question if a black hole occurred on the place we live, how it would bent the space, time and place.
