ABOUT

Osman Koç is a creative technologist and artist who uses technology as a medium for expression and means by which to dissolve the perceived barriers between stage and audience. Directed by his curiosities, Koç’s works touch many numerous fields including cybernetics, artificial intelligence, biosensors, kinetic sculptures, reactive lighting, audiovisual performances and games with alternative physical controllers.

Koç designs his own unique softwares which enable visual imagery to be directly affected by sound and camera input. It subsequently becomes an instrument through real-time manipulation capabilities, allowing for artistic interpretation and improvisation. The result is a mindfully designed collaborative audiovisual experience that is immersive and site-specific, prompting a paradigm shift in live performance engagement.

Based in San Francisco, CA Koç consults for a variety of agencies and brands, produces immersive installations, speaks, and performs as a live VJ.
