''The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science.''- EINSTEIN

Award winning Designer and New Media Artist Eylul Duranagac is the Creative Director at OUCHHH. In her work, Eylul’s goal is to augment the relationship between science, astrophysics and geological environments by employing design principles inspired and engineered by nature, and implementing them in new media arts. She conducts research for inspiration at the intersection of computational design, materials science, physics, geology, and applies that knowledge to design across disciplines, new media and canvases —from the micro to the macro scale. These include parametric design, motion design, architecture, as well as the design of new technologies for immersive experiences and public art installations.Eylul believes that in the natural world, shape and matter are structured through growth and adaptation, resulting in highly tunable and hierarchically structured constructs, which exhibit excellent mechanical properties. However, conventional digital design tools and processes display little integration between shape formation and parametric surfaces. Eylul goes against conventionalism and works to associate forms and shapes observed in nature to classical geometry. She believes that these shapes actually are a powerful abstraction of reality, so we need primitive objects to give form and to understand the complex structure that exists in nature. Eylul’s work is showcased in permanent museums, international festivals and featured in many publications, such as Society For Arts And Technology [SAT], CERN Particle Physics Laboratory, MOMA NY, TEDxCERN, National Space Center UK, CNN International, Google USA, WIRED Magazine, Fubiz, Vimeo (Staf Pick), Ars Prix Electronica, Miami Science Museum.
