When spaces lose their dimensions and generate sculptural illusions, when waves of information are suddenly transformed into images: then Refik Anadol must be at the Zurich Schiffbau centre.
The boundaries between the digital and physical world are becoming ever more fluid, and this is an area Refik Anadol has been exploring for years. Born in Istanbul, Turkey, in 1985, the artist belongs to the first digital generation. Today, Refik Anadol is a lecturer and visiting researcher in the Design Media Arts department of UC Los Angeles, where he also lives. But first and foremost, Refik Anadol is an artist who transforms the transcendence between data and illusion into a visual spectacle.
