New media artist, Ozan Turkkan was born in Turkey. He worked many years in the field of multimedia and digital art in different countries in Europe, Istanbul and the U.S. Before the very first steps in digital media, he studied and practiced different art disciplines in Istanbul, Philadelphia, Salamanca, Florence, Barcelona and Bruxelles. He received his Masters in Multimedia at BAU (Escola Superior de Disseny) in Barcelona, where he lived and worked many years as a new media artist.
His work is centered on experimental media and digital arts with a focus on generative computer art, fractals, algorithmic art, moving images and motion as a reflection of impermanent nature of existence, human and social behavior. And mutation from one form into another as a universal being, both material and consciousness. He uses technology as a canvas to create innovative and engaging digital art installations to observe forms of interaction, social exchange, participation and transformation.
He likes to explore the many-folded boundaries between science, art and new technologies, and combining different media ele-ments in a creative process.
