Employing a variety of medium, Yeshim Agaoglu gives us a poetic take on the ordinary made extraordinary. She has a profound interest in the humanity to be found in the urban and industrial landscape and transforms apparently ordinary objects, such as circuit boards and other found objects, into installations and images of compelling mystery and beauty. By replacing the human figure into a fictive urban landscape constructed from the internal machinery of digital technology, she brings us to question the speed and direction of urban development. The scale of the modern city as our human habitat becomes an artificial construct, in which the organic development of habitable space is lost, thereby lending the urban landscape a sense of restriction and anonymity.
Agaoglu makes a claim to reinstate the human in the urban and the digital landscape; by playing with scale she makes reference to notions of architectural folly and delusions of grandeur in urbanization, and in doing so reminds us of an urgent need to rediscover humanity within an increasingly technologically dominated world.
