oddviz creates virtual installations made of photogrammetric inventory of street objects

istanbul-based creative studio oddviz reveals its photogrammetric inventory of street objects in the shape of virtual installations reflecting the vibes of cities around the world. titled ‘inventory’, the series of images comprises hundreds of pieces the team has captured in its hometown and during traveling to new york, venice and berlin.

public space collects culture constantly as the surfaces are painted with tags, graffiti and covered with stickers. conditions change with weather, impacts, and maintenance. interferences create uniqueness, but unlike cultural objects under protection in museums or galleries, street furniture is in constant danger of renovation or replacement.

using photogrammetry, oddviz’s inventory documents and protects street culture in 3 dimensions with high-resolution texture. during the creation of the first composition of istanbul street objects, the team let the coincidences lead the way — a random arrangement was applied referencing the chaotic soul of the city.

for the composition of manhattan inventory, the team has used 400 unique street objects such as fire hydrants, utility poles, booths, and statues. for this one, they applied an arrangement similar to the grid of the city plan with an emphasis on vertical growth of the city. venice inventory of 150 ancient wells and fountains is installed around the grand canal, while the arrangement of 200 façades and sidewalks of berlin seeks the german precision.
