Linker Project Manager: Zhengyang Huang
I am a new media artist currently based in Los Angeles and an MFA graduate from UCLA, Design Media Arts. I’ve been working on self-directed art and design projects for several years. My work deals with a variety of media and techniques, such as interface designs, web-based interaction, speculative designs, 3D playable programs, and video production. I think, research, and make work about our presence in the rapidly restructuring topography of technology.
Interests: interdisciplinary art practice; speculative research and designs on software, interfaces, and technologies in our data-driven reality; web, game, interactive design; video making; object making, installation/space design; I like to go to galleries and museums every so often for new shows
Fun Fact: I am a twin and I collaborate with my brother, Zhengzhou Huang. We work as an artist group making objects, interfaces, and imaginary systems. We are currently working on topics such as digital bodies and performative software.
Why GTL: I am really interested in becoming a member of the learning community that GTL’s built and held to its core values. I identify myself as a self-learner and collaborator, and I am eager to learn new skills and cultivate new ideas through collaborative thinking and making. I worked as a teaching assistant during my time at UCLA and was a visiting lecturer teaching a summer course on motion design and video making in UCLA. I am excited to build interesting learning sessions and make meaningful designs in GTL’s community.
