As Buyukberber's seminal graduation project for the San Francisco Art Institute's Art and Technology Master's Program, "Mediated Virtuality" amalgamates a plethora of techniques. It offers not just an installation but a visionary glimpse into the prospective evolution of mixed reality experiences and, indeed, the very future of art. This endeavor accentuates the potential intersections of art and technology, illuminating new pathways and challenging traditional artistic boundaries.
"For our show, Mr. Buyukberber did the impossible. He created a world where the viewer
was able to physically touch virtual objects. Since we work with emerging technologies,
virtual reality is not a new concept for us. However, this type of sculpture was a first in the
world. Can Buyukberber pioneered a new type of art using virtual reality as a sculpture
instead of as just visual entertainment. I make no exaggeration when I say that we are
yet to see the results of how others will be inspired by this important work of art."
