Elaine Miu Cheung works at the intersection of art, design, computing and technology. Originally from Los Angeles, she explores themes relating to our embodiment of tech, future systems, and experiential interactions. As a Chinese-American, she bridges ideologies from Eastern and Western perspectives and practices which feeds into her most recent work on the nature on consciousness through wearable technologies – awarded as a Student Finalist at the 2017 SXSW’s Interactive Festival. In 2013, she completed her BFA at University of California, San Diego majoring in Interdisciplinary Computing and the Arts and in 2016, she earned an MFA in Media Design Practices from Art Center College of Design. Elaine is a well-traveled designer, recently participating in the American Arts Incubator 2017 that took her to Moscow, Russia to lead a team of artists to build interactive and inclusive prototypes for those with disabilities. Through a fellowship from DESIGNMATTERS, Elaine traveled to Yangon, Myanmar as a summer researcher and UX designer for Proximity Designs in 2014, developing strategies for branding and consulting on a collaborative research project exploring the use of smart sensors for rural farming. Her work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, San Diego, Grinnell, Iowa and Moscow, Russia.
