Bios

Yang Wang

Yang is a new media artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Through his computational art practice, Yang relates the systematic and analytical side of computer algorithm to the generative and aesthetic. His work critiques notions that invites closer examinations, or produces poetic images. Yang is also an independent designer and a computer software programmer. He has helped many art institutions create large-scale, high-profile interactive installations. Such as the ArtLens Exhibition for Cleveland Museum of Art, Emissary Trilogy and BOB for artist Ian Cheng exhibited at MOMA PS1 and Serpentine London respectively, Computer vision mobile app for the artist Yung Jake, a large-scale interactive experience Exhibit: Growth for west coast based Umpqua Bank, and many more.

Yang holds a BFA of Artistic Design from University of Science and Technology Beijing, and a MPS in Interactive Media Arts from Interactive Telecommunication Program (itp) from New York University (NYU).

汪洋是⼀位新媒体艺术家,现居纽约。作为一名程序艺术家,汪洋尝试同时在作品中表达出计算机代码语言的系统性和分析性,以及它的生成性和审美性。他的作品批判模糊的概念,或者制造诗意的图像。 洋也是一位专业程序员和设计师。他曾帮助多家知名艺术机构,美术馆和品牌创作⼤尺寸的数字互动艺术装置。例如克利夫兰美术馆 (Celveland Museum of Art)的交互画廊ArtLens展览;美国艺术家郑曦然 (Ian Cheng) 在纽约现代美术馆 (MOMA PS1),和伦敦蛇形画廊 (Serpentine Gallery)的个展,以及与美国嘻哈艺术家Yung Jake合作为AT&T创作的人工智能移动App等等.

Zhenzhen Qi

Zhenzhen is a computational artist and educator. She is fascinated by employing computational languages to create alternative images that’s slightly bizarre, where patterns are shifted, expectations are broken, and a larger system emerges. Zhenzhen is currently a doctoral candidate at Columbia University, studying and practicing new media art education. She is an adjunct assistant professor at The Fine and Performing Arts department at Baruch College, teaching Digital Interactivity since 2015, and Art Game since 2018. In her artistic and pedagogical practice, she tries to spaces to contain real feelings, positive or negative, conscious or unconscious. She believes that real feeling is the starting point of relation, discourse, and meaning making.

Zhenzhen Qi holds a BS of Applied Mathmatics from University of California, Berkeley, and a MPS in Interactive Media Arts from Interactive Telecommunication Program (itp) from New York University(NYU).

贞贞是⼀位新媒体艺术家和教育家。她着迷于利用程序语言来创造另⼀种稍微怪诞的图像–模式被转移,期望被打破,⼀个更大的系统展现出来。贞贞⽬前在哥伦⽐亚⼤学攻读博士,学习和实践新媒体艺术在高等教育环境中的实施。她是纽约巴鲁克学院 (Baruch College) 的客座教授,从2015年年开始教授“数字互动“(Digital Interactice)课程,2018年开设“艺术游戏“(Art Game)课程。在她的创作和教学过程中,她试图建立出能承载真实感觉的空间,正面或负面,有意识的或无意识的。她认为真实的感受是关系,讨论,及创造意义的初始点.

About Discourse

At 2016, after they moved from Chinatown, Manhattan to Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They converted their loft-y new home to an event venue Discourse.

Discourse is a pilot practice of alternative education.It promotes empirical and spontaneous exchanges and evokes for a new form of convergence. The project was initiated by Yang Wang and Zhenzhen Qi in 2015, in Brooklyn, New York. Discourse is a place for gathering, a space to play video games, fall asleep, and share breakfast. It nurtures the mundane interactive connectivity, investigates subtle integration of everyday conversational sphere, as well as encourages and traces improvised spoken verse. Discourse expands the forms of thought exchange instead of formal analytical and reactive argument.

Discourse 是一个替代性教育的试验项目,旨在促进实证和自发的交流,并启发新的知识融汇。本项目由汪洋和漆贞贞于2015年在纽约布鲁克林创立,提供一个聚会的平台,可以在这里玩电子游戏,睡觉,一起吃早餐。Discourse培养平凡生活中的交互联结,探究日常对话场域的微妙整合,同时鼓励并追索即兴的遣词造句。在正式的条理分析与回应性的论辩之外,Discourse延伸扩展着思想交流的形式。
