Yagmur Uyanik & Can Buyukberber
From Bits To Atoms
11 MAY 2016
From Bits To Atoms contains collaborative works of Yagmur Uyanik and Can Buyukberber. It visualizes different scales of time and movement while questioning daily perception with site specific installations. Physical light, computational methods, parametric forms and digital fabrication techniques are used to create a conceptual language. Yagmur Uyanik and Can Buyukberber have backgrounds in architecture and visual communication design. Their collaborative projects combine forms and visual unities using sound and light. Their work extends digital media to a point where it may become physical experience based on spatial thinking and architectural organization.
Yagmur Uyanik creates new media artworks, sculptures, media art and installations. With a conceptual approach, she develops forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based on subjective associations and formal parallels, inciting the viewer to make new personal associations. Her work deals with inner soundscape ecologies which may be generated by the nature of the object and turning the physical material to a new instrument. She endeavors to translate the dialog between sound and material, to a dialog between audience and the surrounding space; both physical and virtual.
Can Buyukberberʼs practice is an exploration in art and technology; investigating the relationship between virtual and physical space in order to create immersive experiences by using using sound, projected light and space. His projection mapping techniques open a gate between the virtual and physical space, every surface operating as display potential. He is interested in translating observations and insights on the immanent intelligence of nature, self-organizing systems, formations in time and patterns of the invisible space between the objects into visible, audible, and tangible expressions. The intention of his work is to construct experiential visual narratives that use abstraction and geometry as a universal vocabulary, in order to jump beyond the boundaries of cultural codings and barriers of language.
