   About_        Blog_        Academics_

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

With over 15 years at the confluence of art and science, Eylul Duranagac has firmly established herself as an esteemed figure in the new media arts landscape. As an award-winning creative director, her expertise bridges the gap between traditional forms of art and emerging technological mediums, exploring the profound potential of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in artistic expressions.

Presently an esteemed faculty member at Yıldız Technical University's Faculty of Art and Design, she provides academic insights into the delicate balance of art, science, and technology. Her primary endeavor revolves around the nexus of these disciplines, aiming to redefine the relationship between science, art, and technology. By integrating data and algorithms, she crafts new media masterpieces that range from the micro to the macro scale. Her work embodies themes as vast as the universe, the intricacies of art history, and the nuances of subjects like physics, math, and nature.

Her exhibitions have spanned the globe, from the hallowed halls of MoMA and Ars Electronica to revered institutions like NASA, CERN, and the Taipei Digital Art Center. Esteemed publications including WIRED, Global Times, and Art China have recognized her contributions.

Ouchhh studio, under Eylul's leadership, boasts an impressive portfolio of 52 public art projects across all continents, gracing cities from Tokyo to Barcelona, Seattle to Berlin, and more, leaving indelible marks on numerous festivals and institutions.

Her accolades include the prestigious Young Guns 18 from The One Club in New York — an award that has acknowledged luminaries such as Stefan Sagmeister and Jessica Walsh.

Eylul's educational journey has been both expansive and profound. She secured a double major B.A. from Istanbul Bilgi University, followed by a Masters in Interactive Media Design from Yıldız Technical University. Currently, she is furthering her academic pursuits with a Ph.D. in Art and Design at Yıldız Technical University. Beyond her formal education, she specialized in machine learning under the mentorship of AI luminary, Andrew Ng, of Stanford University

Her passion is unmistakable as she continues to innovate, particularly in employing GAN models for meaningful storytelling. Eylul has also been a notable presence in design symposiums, including OFFF Barcelona 2019, Digital Design Days OFFF Milano 2018, and The-Future/DUBLIN 2017, to name a few.
