Us In Another Form

Sougwen 愫君 Chung

Digital Art Fair is thrilled to announce a spotlight showcase, “Us In Another Form” at K11 MUSEA as part of the annual Art Karnival event. The exciting showcase brings forth an extraordinary body of work featuring the renowned award-winning AI artist Sougwen 愫君 Chung, represented by HOFA Gallery. The showcase will be on view from 26th March to 19th May 2024 at 6F, K11 Art & Cultural Centre, K11 MUSEA. 

 

Fresh from Sougwen’s esteemed TIME100 Impact award success, the artist brings a new body of work from their series “Us In Another Form”. A former MIT Media Lab fellow and Google Artist in Residence, Sougwen’s work is the definitive example of the ever changing junctions between Art, Technology and Science, having programmed and built robots named D.O.U.G. (Drawing Operations Unit Generation_X) to assist in their practice.

Sougwen’s collaborative works with D.O.U.G. have garnered global acclaim, with acquisitions in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum (UK), and is the first AI model to be collected by a major institution. A pioneer in human-machine collaborations, the robotic arms of the D.O.U.G synchronize with Sougwen’s brain waves with paint brushes in hand, as the two together experience the rituals of hybridity in drawing and meditation.

Through 2 decades of their practice, Sougwen pushes the boundaries of machine as collaborator and algorithm as creative catalyst through tools and datasets, to create “Us In Another Form”.

Alongside their featured works at K11 MUSEA, Sougwen will also be launching a new body of work, titled “GENESIS”, at Soho House Hong Kong. GENESIS  is an ongoing project exploring the evolution of the drawn line and the robotic form. It begins with a collection of speculative machine constructions inspired by living organisms. GENESIS Forms are sculpted through a bespoke VR process and collected as movement data, contributing to a groundbreaking new spatial dataset. The GENESIS Dataset will serve as the foundation for an upcoming AI system, representing the next generation of human and machine collaboration.
