Berkay Soykan is a Berlin-based computational design student, creative technologist and prospective designer. His main interest lies in the critical analysis of emerging technologies and their interplay with our physical and virtual world. Deriving from post-digital ontologies, he is constantly searching for ways to reappropriate computer technologies, arguably the epitomic tools of the Anthropocene, in non-anthropocentric and non-Western contexts.
Originally from Istanbul, Turkey, Berkay received his B.Sc. in management and computer science at Technical University of Munich. After working in high-tech environments at start-ups and multinational companies, he decided to pursue critical design approaches towards new technologies. Berkay is currently studying in the master’s program Design & Computation at University of the Arts and Technical University of Berlin.
