Muta-Morphosis: cityscapes´ collages

¨Our cities change everyday, in ways which probably escape our notice until it’s too late. Driven by temporary gain, or, conversely, a false inherited nobility, we choose to excise parts of the city while preserving others. At the time of our choosing, the selection may have revealed itself in the most logical and positive terms, but further down the trajectory of time, those terms mutate or disappear altogether, replaced by a fabricated, that is, more digestible history. The parts of a city which do manage to survive must always be willing and able to undergo further adaptation. Architect/photographer Murat Germen documents the natural selection of cities and builds on their fragments, creating imaginative, unwieldy cityscapes.¨
