Mozaik, design culture in Turchia

Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review


Infinite and without center. With this expression, laconic and surreal, Orhan Pamuk effectively defines Istanbul, his city that is constantly changing, spreading over the territory. Expanding slowly but inexorably, invading parts of the East and the West as liquid on marble. Incorporating, as if it were building land, that sea that is the fluid hinge between the countries, inhabiting it with every shape and size of boat. Infinite and without a center like a mosaic, composed of small, insignificant tesserae, if observed one by one, in color, in the form just outlined, in gloss, those tesserae that compose give life to a polyphonic work, in which it would be profoundly wrong to think a simple sum of elements, because the result goes well beyond this, producing an exponential and spreading effect on the covered surface that loses the materiality to acquire the infiniteness given by decomposing into fragments.
