In 2011, the Sabancı family commissioned the renowned video artist Kutluğ Ataman to create a work honouring Sakıp Sabancı, businessman and patron of the arts, on the 10th anniversary of his death.

The work consists of passport-sized photographs of thousands of people from all walks of life whose paths crossed with the much-loved businessman. One of the largest video art works in the world, it was completed by Larves Artware Solutions in three years. The work comprises approximately 10,000 LCD panels, aligned in 144 modules, each consisting of sets stacked horizontally and vertically.
