Suburbs of Istanbul, is a web-based interactive documentary and community participatory art work that examines the identity of “suburban” Istanbul through the eyes and voices of those living in this fascinating city. To that end, Suburbs of Istanbul combines video portraits, photography, soundscapes, data visualizations, and community-generated content to bring these stories to life through an interactive online experience. The project provides an online platform where suburban residents of Istanbul share their stories and experiences around their new “suburban identity.” Bayar conducted a community workshop in TAK Istanbul for those who would be interested in participating in the project.
