Refik Anadol

Media Artist

Refik Anadol (b. 1985, Istanbul, Turkey) is a media artist, director and pioneer in the aesthetics of
data and machine intelligence. His body of work locates creativity at the intersection of humans
and machines. In taking the data that flows around us as the primary material and the neural
network of a computerized mind as a collaborator, Anadol paints with a thinking brush, offering us
radical visualizations of our digitized memories and expanding the possibilities of architecture,
narrative, and the body in motion. Anadol’s site-specific AI data sculptures, live audio/visual
performances, and immersive installations take many forms, while encouraging us to rethink our
engagement with the physical world, its temporal and spatial dimensions, and the creative
potential of machines.
