Information

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).
