Özlem Uzun Hazneci, Ph.D.

Born in Merzifon, Amasya

Lives & works in Istanbul, TURKEY


Throughout my artistic career I’ve use many different mediums/tools such as image manupulations, video arts, outdoor installations, performances, fictional photography series, animations, bio-arts, printing techniques, sound installations etc…


Recently I started to follow a new creative path which includes augmented reality, virtual modelling, artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies that I’m extremely excited about. I believe that these developing technologies are presenting a great form of freedom for the creators who don’t want to stick with a certain style or medium, such as me.

Also this immersive technologies creates a huge theorical debate on the definition of art, creativity, ethics and ownership which I’m questioning from the day one as an academic researcher...

So, I’m still updating, discovering, thinking and playing...
