Murat Germen and I will be presenting some work at Upgrade! Istanbul Meeting in Istanbul Bilgi University. The discussion will go around re-construction of informational space. If you are around Istanbul, please come over.
Feb 22 (today) 6pm
Istanbul Bilgi University, Dolapdere, Z-08.
Here is the announcement at the Upgrade! website:
Space is usually defined / experienced as a physical entity; yet, we recently began to observe that the notion of â€˜spaceâ€™ can exist / be perceived / used as a non-physical organism by means of interactive media and virtual environment applications in the computer platform. Such creations bring new definitions of â€œspaceâ€ and can be named as â€œinformational spaceâ€ or â€œcognitive spaceâ€. As a result, it is possible to talk about a process of re-constructing space. While Burak Arikan pursues this process by creating pieces involving computer networks and using the concepts of connectivity, collectivity; Murat Germen follows a similar path within the realm of digital photography and also computational design studies that he conducts with colleagues from Sabanci University.
Upgrade! Istanbul is a monthly gathering for new media artists, academicians, practitioners, curators and for all of the other actors of digital culture, organized by NOMAD and hosted by SantralIstanbul.
