This thesis provides a theoretical reading and the processes of my works that have been produced throughout the period of the masters program. The thesis starts with how tourism transforms travel into a uniform commodity and then continues by discussing similar positions that can be encountered in urban space. How travel is shaped according to these positions is regarded in relation to concepts like automobility, the dissemination of the advertisement images, the development of gated communities and mass production. Being produced with images and materials that are collected during travels around different perimeters in the city, the works challenge the concepts mentioned above.
