About:

I'm a Brooklyn based experimental visual artist from Istanbul. I create art experimentally in order to evoke curiosity and self reflection in others. I'm originally an experimental filmmaker. I focused on the intersection between art and technology during my graduate studies at Tisch School of the Arts, programming various generative drawing systems, designing interactions, and giving several video performances. I work with video, code and physical computing in order to try and get a better sense of my inner universe.

 

In one of my latest projects; Experiments in Expressive EEG (2020), I used my brainwaves and more importantly my efforts for inner navigation to create abstract digital paintings/drawings, through a visual program I coded. 

Professional:

Generative Artist, 2017-present:
