Neo Christopher Chung

20.09.2022 11:00

Neo Christopher Chung crosses disciplines with an interest in data and machine culture. Through new media installations and interventions, he examines and reveals emergent aesthetics of systems that are deeply coupled with social challenges. His recent works focus on impacts of media, artificial intelligence, and cybernetics, exposing the complexity of science. To this end, he experiments with sensors, micro-controllers, and machine learning algorithms to create multi-layered works that merge new media, sculpture, and spatial practices. Born in South Korea, Chung studied visual arts and biomedical engineering at Duke University and holds a Ph.D. in quantitative and computational biology from Princeton University. He obtained an MFA at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław. As an assistant professor at the University of Warsaw and a research scientist at the University of California, Los Angeles, he conducts research in computational biology and machine learning.
