Can Büyükberber’s digital sculpture and animated artwork series Multiverse is an ongoing form experiment that emerges from the intersection of higher dimensional spaces, organic structures, physics and futurism. It is informed by the artist’s interdisciplinary studies, which connect design, art and science.
The Multiverse series consists of transcendental objects that are poetic audiovisual meditations, transforming in viewers mind from DNA strands to a black hole, with its intersecting nets of complex higher-dimensional geometries. The changing forms draw attention to the process of metamorphosis by visualising a string of recursive transformations without a beginning or end.
The collection was developed as part of Büyükberber’s artist residency at Autodesk Pier 9 Workshop, during which he explored the concept of Mediated Virtuality to form an interactive installation which combines virtual reality and 3D printed sculptures. The effect of the installation is to blur the sense of scale and presence in physical and digital environments, as well as blurring the distinction between the physical and the digital. The hypnotic forms of the Multiverse project have been brought to varied public and private spaces as kinetic sculptures.
