Tengchao Zhou

Class of 2023

Making art poetic and emotionally affirming, I generate visual forms, meaning, and interactivity through coding. I create artworks that are links between computation and nature.

I 3d-print computational kinetic sculptures, the computational kin to kinetic art, and mathematical sculptures. My screen-based works are interactive, some of which qualify as games. Topics include sexuality, linguistics, disturbance, etc. Having found a way to bypass VR headsets, I create mechanisms for people to interact inside virtual spaces. With this type of works, we can turn art spaces into places for play.
