"WALKTHROUGHS is our response to the current challenging times. With museums implementing large layoffs, galleries cancelling shows and foreseeing closure, art fairs being postponed, we have been reflecting on the best response to the current situation. Now more than ever, we think it is important to stay connected, creative and get inspired. Walkthroughs of artistic VR experiences is what we have envisioned. VR art live streamed through the artist's eyes. A weekly meetup happening safely online with curators joining the conversation and creatives that, in turn, put the headset on, share their screen and walk us through the VR work." -synthesis gallery

"Conversation with Can Buyukberber, an artist whose immersive, multi-sensory works test the borders of real and virtual space, and examine scale and perception. Through XR, large-scale installations, projection mapping, and fabrication methods like 3D printing, his work is organic, poetic, ambitious, and imaginative. We talk about his practice, his creative philosophy, upcoming projects, and how his excursions into virtual space might offer some insight into the world to come."
