Subjective Contours

Subjective Contours by Hayal Pozanti & Todd Shalom

Once a bohemian center, the West Village has long lost itself to its own charm. And like Istanbul, the neighborhood adheres to no grid system. Subjective Contours aims to explore its present state, reveling in the neighborhood's unintentional geometry and flattening out its space via framing, drawing, and performing. Visual artists Hayal Pozanti (Turkey) and Todd Shalom (USA) will lead participants in reimagining plans for the neighborhood.

This walk holds 12 people and will be held in English, though Hayal also speaks Turkish. The walk has been commissioned for "Istanbul Week" by Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.
