Yağmur Uyanık & Joey VerbekeUS
Yagmur Uyanik is a San Francisco based New Media Artist based 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. Uyanik 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, Sonar D+, Signal Light Festival, Exploratorium and Geneva International Film Festival.
Joey Verbeke is a New Media Artist and the Head of AI Innovation, with a background in music and computer science. He focusses his work on imbuing qualities of surreality, curiosity, frisson, and exploring our ephemeral and finite sensory-limited existence. Leveraging technology as a medium, he searches for tangents from its linear progression to explore alternative and innovative applications, approaches, and perspectives. His work extends beyond subjective limits and gives the viewer a chance to question the reconstructed reality he creates.
Verbeke’s work has been exhibited at galleries and institutions including Denver International Airport, Sundance Film Festival, SIGGRAPH, SXSW, TED, and Future of Storytelling.
