Erdal İnci (born 1983 in Ankara) is a Turkish new media artist, as well as painter, photographer, filmmaker and street artist based in Istanbul & Berlin. He is primarily known for his cloned motion videos, which are presented online in a reduced GIF format. He studied Painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts at Hacettepe University, graduating in 2005.

İnci describes his works as creating a “human pattern” akin to “a photograph or a painting which is composed of moments.” In this way, “the viewer can watch all the time phases in a small amount of time – […] 1 or 2 seconds.”  He most often uses himself as the cloned figure, creating what has been called “an army of street performers.” Hereby, according to İnci, “single figure is turned into a mass by cloning itself […], an expression of the 21st century’s visual bombardment epoch.”

These animation works, according to the artist, also address the physics of sound. Cloning motion “fills the frame,” making it “perpetual, so the timeline will become like a circle” or “like a tone.” The locations selected are almost exclusively public spaces, often well-frequented urban ones that serve as a meeting point or have sociopolitical significance, such as Berlin’s Alexanderplatz or Istanbul’s Taksim Square.

In 2012 Inci turned his video works into the GIF format and started to post in his blog :erdalinci.tumblr.com. His GIF works have been featured in several online editorial art blogs and press such as: Zeit OnlineCNNWiredThe Creators ProjectThe Huffington Post, Canal + and Deutsche Welle.
