Refik Anadol: In the Mind’s Eye – Telstra Creativity & Innovation Series

Presented by Telstra and NGV

Turkish born, LA-based media artist Refik Anadol examines how machine intelligence is reshaping his world and the world around him – imagining a near future where super intelligent machines that learn will redefine our places, relationships, economies and broader lives.

Includes an opportunity to view Escher X nendo | Between Two Worlds from 7.30–9pm.


Refik Anadol is world-renowned for exploring the relationship between art and machine intelligence. Anadol recently shot to global prominence with WDCH Dreams, the groundbreaking visual art installation that projected three-dimensional ‘data sculptures’ directly onto the undulating stainless- steel exterior of Frank Gehry’s Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Embedding media arts into architecture, he questions the possibility of a post-digital architectural future where enriched immersive environments and computing are ubiquitous. His body of work explores how perception and experience of time and space are radically changing now that machines have all but colonised our everyday lives.


The Telstra Creativity and Innovation Series is an initiative of Telstra and the NGV, an annual presentation that showcases the work of world-leading innovators.
