State Crisis: MAW at the Galata Tower in Istanbul

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009


In support of the 17th Annual Istanbul LBGT Pride Festival, Sinanji and Batchku performed an improvised projection at the historic Galata Tower. At the end of the projection, we had a conversation with a number of very interested policemen who eventually shifted their language from one surrounding a “state crisis” to one of curiosity and admiration about the real-time analog-meets-digital flavor of our projections.
