Sougwen Chung explores the mark made-by-hand and the mark made-by-machine as an approach to understanding the interaction between humans and computers. Through her work, Sougwen examines the contrasts between various dichotomies such as human and machine and technology and emotion. Sougwen’s organic, maximalist work is determined by intuitive and algorithmic processes and spans installation, sculpture, still image, drawing, and performance. An internationally exhibited artist, her work has been shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Geneva; MIT Media Lab, Cambridge; The Hospital Club, London; Mutek Festival, Mexico City; Sonar Festival, Barcelona.
She was an inaugural member of The New Museum’s NEW INC in New York. Previously, she received a Bachelors of Fine Art from Indiana University and a Masters Diploma in Interactive Art from Hyper Island in Sweden.
In 2014, she was selected as one of the Top 20 New Visual Artists under 30 by Print Magazine. Her work has been featured in The New Yorker, Hyperallergic, Dazed and Confused, The Creators Project, ArtFCity, The Observer, and Business Insider. She has enjoyed speaking internationally at conferences including OFFF, Barcelona; FITC, Tokyo; Internet Dargana, Stockholm; SXSW, Austin; The Art Directors Club, New York.
