Born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1981, Hüseyin Mert Erverdi is an award-winning experimental filmmaker and new media artist. His work explores the convergence points between art, science and nature. Specifically, his art and academic research aim to inquire into macro-scale/micro-scale human and non-human networks and ontological relations between entities. In addition to communicating his vision through various art forms, Erverdi is deeply involved with philosophy and media theory. He received his B.A. degree in Visual Communication and Design from Bilkent University in 2008. A year after his graduation Erverdi was admitted to the M.A. program in Cinema and Television Studies at Bilgi University, which he graduated two years later with high honors. He is currently pursuing a doctorate in Cinema and Media Studies at Bahçeşehir University. Erverdi lives and works in Istanbul.
