Cansu Topaloglu is currently an Istanbul-based multi-disciplinary artist with a background in graphic design, aiming to make distinctly ambiguous visuals by the hybridity of various disciplines. She works with a wide range of mediums to create distorted/manipulated imagery, and mostly seeks to connect digital & analogue forms with a sentimental & intimate whilst fluid & dynamic gaze. Her work constitutes an intuitive fashion by compounding experimentalism. Her interests consist of blending organic/analogue visual techniques with machinic technologies, and creating digital media through the agency of technology. She has been establishing online & offline presence as a digital media artist / visual designer / writer / editor / curator / researcher through conferences, social media, magazines, journals, zines and publicly exhibiting internationally. // #cansumakesstuff // #cansutakesphotos
