Multidisciplinary artist Özcan Saraç brakes down the boundaries between art, philosophy, science and mathematics focusing on project based works using mainly creative media and publishing tools. His installations, sound works and photography form conceptual and complex structures dedicated to existential outings by creating fields of research with the purpose of questioning the human beings relation to the universal system, logic and social mechanisms.

His works have been exhibited in London, Paris, New York, Istanbul, Zurich, Geneva, Basel and Milan, released two studio albums under his name on the Germany based record label Kaer'Uiks and performed internationally at several organizations.
