IS AN ARTIST & (RE)SEARCHER BASED IN
LONDON / NEW YORK / HONG KONG.
加拿大华裔艺术家

Sougwen 愫君 Chung is a Chinese-born, Canadian-raised artist and (re)searcher based in New York.

她是麻省理工学院媒体实验室(MIT Media Lab)的前研究员,跨学科艺术家,人机协作领域的先驱。2019年,她因在艺术与科学领域的贡献获得“蒙特卡洛女性奖”的最高奖项“2019年度女性奖”。她的创作涵盖装置、雕塑、绘画和行为艺术,探索分别由人手和机器创作的痕迹图画。她用自己的画作训练人工智能,把学习到自己风格的AI转移到机械臂上,与她同台作画。所以她的作品就像是双人画作,将艺术家的风格和人工智能的风格自然地结合在一起。代表作品:《绘图操作单元》(Drawing Operations Unit)。

“我们正在创造未来的新型混合感知,这是我们从未经历过的。”

 



Chung's work explores the mark-made-by-hand and the mark-made-by-machine as an approach to understanding the dynamics of humans and systems. Chung is a former research fellow at MIT’s Media Lab and a pioneer in the field of human-machine collaboration. In 2019, she was selected as the Woman of the Year in Monaco for achievement in the Arts & Sciences.

Her speculative critical practice spans performance, installation, and drawings which have been featured in numerous exhibitions at museums and galleries around the world.

In 2018 she was an inaugural E.A.T. Artist in Resident in partnership with New Museum and Bell Labs, and was awarded a commission for her project Omnia per Omnia. In 2016, Chung received Japan Media Art’s Excellence Award in for her project, Drawing Operations.

She is a former research fellow at MIT’s Media Lab. She has been awarded Artist in Residence positions at Google, Eyebeam, Japan Media Arts, and Pier 9 Autodesk. In 2014, she was selected as one of the Top 20 New Visual Artists by Print Magazine.

 

Her work has been exhibited internationally, including at Art Basel, Miami; National Art Center, Tokyo; NTT InterCommunication Center [ICC], Tokyo, Japan; ArtScience Museum, Singapore; MIT Media Lab, Cambridge; The Drawing Center, New York; The New Museum (Sky Room), New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Geneva; Mana Contemporary, New York, Tribeca Film Festival, New York; The Hospital Club, London; Mutek Festival, Montreal & Mexico City; Sonar Festival, Barcelona. Her work has also been featured in The New Yorker, Wired, Art F City, Dazed and Confused, The Creators Project, MASHABLE, Engadget, Business Insider, Fast Company and USA Today.
