Yagmur Uyanik

Yağmur Uyanık is a New Media Artist with backgrounds in architecture and music. Her work combines forms and visual elements using sound and light to extend the digital media to a point that it becomes a physical experience for the viewer. Driven by spatial thinking, her aspiration is to rethink of the new aesthetic, technique and dynamic perception of space and produce new spatial sensations using technology as an artistic medium of expression. Particularly, her works explore the space among digital and physical entities by creating a hybrid relationship between architecture and media arts. She is interested in the tension between real and synthesized and the creation of phenomena that transcend the physical, which encompasses the output of various disciplines. Uyanık has received her Master’s degree in Art & Technology from San Francisco Art Institute as a Fulbright scholar. Her work was shown at galleries, museums and festivals around the world including Ars Electronica, Linz; Sonar D+, Barcelona; Signal Light Festival, Prague, Exploratorium and California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco.
