With a background in B&W photography, Adem was first introduced to video art during the production of the music videos by MaxQ ("Monday By Satellite") and Third Eye ("Real Thing" and "Pray"). This inspiration made Adem pursue experimental digital art himself. Initially via an Amiga-500 computer, then video-feedback. He expanded his video art repertoire to incorporate intelligent lighting, laser and lego robotics.
Fusing these mediums into dynamic illuminated projection design. Other incidental offshoot mediums included recycled material sculpture, print design & t-shirts. A culmination of years of experimentation in these various mediums informed the creation of the iSOtope144 vj performance map using the UT game engine.
Adem has performed at television studios, galleries, and rave and party spaces. In the late nineties he also ventured into 3D animation for commercial art in its various forms.
Besides VJ Mandala since 1998 he previously used the aliases "Nuero" ('88-'91) and "Tekno Mandala" ('91-'98).
