Akkaya uses 3D scanners and printers, designed by himself, to create his artistic productions. The Typologies Series was created from everyday characters, and was produced through the combination of 3D scanning photogrammetry technique and 3D printer technology, and manipulated digitally. While the characters in the series remind us of the people we can meet at the bus stop every day, with their stances and attitudes, the modifications of some limbs transform them into different personalities. The manner in which he combines his tone and style with humor place emphasis on the passivity of individuals in society.
