ISTANBUL on LINE
3 days / 26 km / 8 people / 1 line
ISTANBUL on LINE explored how a city can be observed by line-walking. I February 2007 a group of 8 Liners did during 3 days, how they can get experience a hidden and secret Istanbul – beyond the common pathways. By walking a 26 km long line straight from East to West a new portrait of Istanbul was produced. The results of the line study about the 26 km long path straight across Istanbul was published in the “ISTANBUL on LINE -documentation map”.
