RUK x KIBLA2LAB International Residency Program: Neo Christopher Chung

03.10.2022 10:00

We are delighted to announce that in early October we will be hosting artist Neo Christopher Chung at KIBLA2LAB as part of the RUK international residency program.  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.

Neo will present his artistic practice at an artist talk, which will take place on Wednesday, 5 October 2022, at 7 p.m. at MMC KIBLA in Maribor. Welcome!

Born in South Korea, Neo Christopher 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.
