“The Zoomed in Photo” (00:01:57) by Simay Yigit, Turkey, 2022
Image and mind are intertwined. But where does the zoomed in photo stand? If the screen was a reflection of our mind’s representations, what would memories look like? How would they get decoded and encoded? The Zoomed in Photo is an attempt to represent similarities between the zoomed in photo and memories off the human mind.
