Bio

Barak Chamo is an interdisciplinary media artist living and working in New York. His work explores the limits of perception, what is seen and unseen by the human system. Questioning common notions of progress and value, he attempts to deconstruct the form and function of media, exposing the ways in which our experience is shaped by spiraling social and technological forces.

His research-based practice is inspired by the materiality of media, from the inner layers of digital displays to optical films that reveal the subjectivity of observation - Chamo employs "technological material" in drawing parallels between the limits of our physical and social senses, from the shortcomings of our visual systems to our cultural misconceptions.

Chamo graduated from the Interactive Telecommunication Program at New York University, where he later taught at the Department of Digital Media. He was a resident at MASS MoCA's Studio program, HoloCenter and IDEALab and was awarded the IDFA Immersive Non-Fiction Award and Special Jury Award for Creative Technology. His work was recently featured at Currents New Media, Fresh Paint Art Fair, Museum of the Moving Image and other international exhibitions.
