The first iteration of the work is contoured into an interactive Flash environment, a hybrid between documentary forms and the ludic. Topologies traces a multiplicity of layers and movements in Istanbul via mobile and ad-hoc Turkish coffee encounters: a slow mapping of unpredictable and rapidly shifting urban patterns and diverse stories and accounts by those who inhabit, walk, dwell, witness, work and protest in the city.
