Who am I? What will your virtual self look like? How will you sound? You don’t need a body; you can be a floating point of view.  You can be the mad hatter or you can be the teapot; you can move back and forth to the rhythm of a song. You can be a tiny droplet in the rain or in the river; you can be what you thought you ought to be all along.

M. Benedikt, Virtual Worlds, pg.372

If you can’t give me poetry, can you give me poetic science?

Ada Lovelace

Nothing is as it was anymore.

In every sense, we are too far from Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man. Since Vitruvian Man was drawn in the journals of Leonardo in 15th century, man’s relation with both himself and the universe has gained a new dimension. While humans shape the technology, we also witness that it is in turn shaped by it. While our ways of living, thinking and being change rapidly, we all feel that we have stepped into a new phase in our lives and we are constantly updated, upgraded and learning to adapt to this rapid change.

Now in Digital Art talk series, which we prepared for Akbank Sanat YouTube channel in 2020; we listened to the artists who working, thinking, producing in this field, whose works we know closely, about their artistic journeys, sources of inspiration, works, new topics that excite them, current projects, suggestions for young artists and what developments await the art world after this period we live in. The series, was taking a snapshot of the “MOMENT” in which today's digital art is in and undertook the task of creating a memory. Now in Digital Art talk series continue with an exhibition this year.

The exhibition aims to create an exciting art space for art lovers, while featuring works of art that bring creative thoughts and practices focused on art, technology and society to life, and topics that occupy today's art world. In the exhibition, Assoc. Prof. Selçuk Artut is the curation consultant of NFT. The talk series titled Conversations on NFT and the Block-Chain accompanying the exhibition aims to delve deeper into the subject under the lens of different perspectives and artistic views, while addressing an objective approach.
