Taeyoung Choi (Teddy Choi)

is an artist and researcher who explores the intersection of art, technology, and experience. His practice and research that investigate tangible interactive forms of human compute interaction attempt to explore the symbiotic relationship between computational systems and human that goes beyond the barrier between analog and digital. Rather than focusing on making technology easy to use, sexy, and consumable, his work opens debate and discussion about the kind of futur people want (and do not want).

Choi received his BA from Daegu University’s Industrial Design department, his MA from Royal Colleg of Art’s Information Experience Design programme. Choi has an international career in new media art practices. His works have been exhibited in United Kingdom, South Korea, and Germany, including Quantum Art conference at the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), ACI conference at the Open University. He has participated in a two years design residency programme KDM at the DGDC, Korea.
