Museum of Energy Mechanical Surface A/V Performance
``The Silahtarağa Power Plant is the first power plant of İstanbul. Its engine rooms which were originally built in 1913 and 1921 were reinforced, restored and converted into the santralistanbul Energy Museum in 2007.``
The 100-year old turbines had remained silent since the Silahtarağa Power Plant was shut down in 1983. In 2014, at the end of a 9-month project the plant’s turbines were restarted in its new identity as an Energy Museum, and launched at the opening of the ICEM 2014.
A fictional performance was designed on the three turbines and performed as part of the opening event. For this performance, the engine room space was scanned in 3D and solid models were developed from the scanned data. The project was produced by Hipo Design&Production.
CYGNUS IMMERSIVE LIGHT PERFORMANCE
A light installation was performed on 2400-sqm closed area at the 2014 International Brand Conference Istanbul.
After the conceptual phase, the music design and lighting structure, then the software were developed. To structure a journey into a black hole, which was the concept of the performance, a void was created in the center of the audience by positioning lights and calibrating the software to deliver the experience of the CYGNUS.

WORLD’S BIGGEST OPEN AIR MUSEUM I Asian Pasific Broadcasting Union 2015 Opening Ceremony
ABU TV SONG FESTIVAL (Asian Pasific Broadcasting Union),
held in a different country every year, was hosted by Turkey this year.
Various artists from 13 countries attended the event held at Istanbul Congress Center. The opening performance was inspired by Turkey’s cultural,
historic and natural heritage and was broadcasted live around the world as well as to attendees with World’s Biggest Open Air Museum concept.
Most of the historical values in the project are in Unesco World Heritage List and Unesco World Heritage Tentative List. Some of the sites we used as visuals are from settlements that have been around for centuries, while others have mysterious pasts and some have mythological history. Many of these will be carried into the future with the same presence, while some will be lost due to natural causes.
Total production process of the project took 1 months. Conceptual drawings of all spaces were prepared and 3D organic and solid surfaces were modeled.
Texture of all surfaces and spaces were prepared considering the period,
historic conditions, wear and formation and the animation process was completed with an abstract approach to space. For model performances, cultural costumes were designed using the complementary elements of spaces. The music for the opening ceremony was composed based on tunes from Anatolia
MULTIDISCIPLINARY A/V PERFORMANCE

Contemporary dance performance, narrative voice and the production featured the story in an abstract expression. An orchestra played between the parts and the sound data taken from their music using NOS (Real-Time Sound Reactive Visuals) were combined with the performance of three artist to create the visual content shown between the parts.
Developed on the idea of using the trampoline interactively, the product is designed in its game and experiment versions. The software of the game was developed in two weeks using Processing and Java.The bouncing height of the player was monitored by cameras and transmitted to game and video programs. Players whose bouncing heights depend on their own skill and capacity raced to achieve the highest score.
