Living in numerous cities throughout of his life Ozan Turkkan has developed a sense of multiculturalism and cosmopolitanism that characterize in his works. Complicated structures and culture, conflicting and coexisting colors and diversity have been a parameter to push the artist to stress on complex field which is converging around the art, new technologies and the sciences of nature.

His work is centered on experimental media and digital arts with a focus on generative computer art, fractals, algorithmic art, moving images and motion as a reflection of impermanent nature of existence, human and social behavior. And mutation from one form into another as a universal being, both material and consciousness. He uses technology as a canvas to create innovative and engaging digital art installations to observe forms of interaction, social exchange, participation and transformation.
