Driven by an interdisciplinary thinking which extends to art, design and science, Buyukberberʼs work often focuses on human perception, exploring new ways of non-linear narratives, geometrical order, synergetics and emergent forms. He has exhibited in international media art festivals, conferences and galleries in Europe, Canada and United States, including collaborations with Grammy-Award winning rock band Tool and Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. He is currently studying at San Francisco Art Institute's Art and Technology MFA program as a Fulbright Grantee and is a resident artist at Autodeskʼs Pier 9 AiR Program.
