Summary: “Transformer” is the first publication of Reccollective and designed by Aylin Önel.

Sancaktar takes close-ups of the wall illusions painted on electrical transformers throughout Istanbul and some surrounding cities. A representation of their time as well as a deformed reflection of urban history, architectural element as much as artistic expression, these images form a social and cultural portrait of the town; A city, eclectic as much as electric, which merge occidental and oriental, mix classical and contemporary, thus creating a utopical anachronism.
