“To develop a complete mind: Study the science of art; Study the art of science. Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.” - Leonardo Da Vinci
Eylul Duranagac is an award-winning creative director working at the intersection of art and science over 15 years.Her work examines artificial intelligence and machine learning models as an artistic medium for creative expression of data and algorithms on the axis of art, science and technology. Eylul’s goal is to augment the relationship between science, art, and technology by employing data and algorithms and implementing them in new media arts.
She conducts research for inspiration at the intersection of machine learning, artificial intelligence, science and applies this knowledge to design across disciplines, new media and canvases- from micro to macro scale.Reoccurring subjects in the work include universe, art history, physics, math, nature, connection with the cosmos , form, light and space.
Eylul's work has been exhibited internationally, at the Ars Electronica, Mori Art Museum, MoMA, Miami Science Museum, National Space Center UK, CERN, NASA, TEDxCERN, Google NY,Taipei Digital Art Center and more…She’s been featured on WIRED, NBC Washington, ABC Washington, Washington City Paper, Art China,Daily China, Global Times etc...

Eylul is winner of the Young Guns 18, NY (The One Club / The One Club for Creativity) For many designers, art directors, illustrators, copywriters, photographers, filmmakers, animators and other creatives, being named a Young Guns winner is a sure sign of a skyrocketing career, as well as a source of validation for all of the stressful days and sleepless nights that have come with early successes.Over the years, their roster has grown to include some exceptional talent, among them Stefan Sagmeister (YG1), Rei Inamoto (YG4), James Victore (YG1), Jessica Walsh (YG8) etc.
Eylul has a B.A. from Istanbul Bilgi University with double major, a Masters of Interactive Media Design from the Yildiz Technical University, and graduated from the course with a high degree by studying machine learning from Andrew Ng. Andrew Ng is Founder of DeepLearning.AI, General Partner at AI Fund, Chairman and an Adjunct Professor at Stanford University.
She is passionate about implementing data to art and immersive canvases and methods that allows for storytelling using GAN models with meaningful control over the narrative. Eylul is on design panels at OFFF Barcelona 2019, Digital Design Days OFFF Milano 2018 , KARMAN WEEK July 7-9 2020, The-Future/DUBLIN 2017, IX Conference/MONTREAL 2015, and more…
