Refik Anadol (b. 1985, Istanbul, Turkey) is a media artist and pioneer in the aesthetics of machine intelligence, and the director of Refik Anadol Studio in Los Angeles. As an artist and a spatial thinker, he addresses the challenges, and the possibilities, that ubiquitous computing has imposed on humanity, and what it means to be a human in the age of AI. Anadol is also a lecturer and researcher for UCLA's Department of Design Media Arts from which he obtained his Master of Fine Arts.
A pioneer in his field, and the first to use artificial intelligence in a public artwork, Anadol’s site-specific audio-visual performances have been featured at iconic landmarks, museums, and festivals worldwide, including Walt Disney Concert Hall, Hammer Museum, Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Artechouse, The Centre Pompidou, Daejeon Museum of Art, Florence Biennale, Venice Architecture Biannale, Art Basel, among many others.
