Ai Hasegawa
Employing forms of bio art, speculative design and design fiction, artist and designer Ai Hasegawa produces works that deal with social issues of our time from the perspective of biology, science and/or technology. She graduated from IAMAS, RCA and MIT Media Lab, and is currently Associate Professor in the Center for Multidisciplinary and Design Science at Keio University. Hasegawa has participated in major exhibitions at MoMA, MoCA Shanghai, Mori Art Museum, Design Museum Holon and Triennale di Milano. She is the author of a design education book titled “Revolutionary20XX”. 

Elena Knox
Elena Knox’s art cuts through digital media, performance, sculpture, sound, music and installation. Intrigued by the motivation behind narcissistic creations, she amplifies human impulses to totemism, idolatry, and fetishism — through these, she claims, we attempt to solve our ultimate loneliness in the galaxy. Knox holds a PhD in Media Art from UNSW Australia Art & Design, and is currently a researcher at Waseda University, Tokyo.

Knox’s principal exhibitions include “ICC Annual 2022: Life / Likeness” at NTT Intercommunication Center, Tokyo (2022); Apex Art New York International Open Call winning exhibition “Can you fuck it? — The Fembot Phenomenon” in Tokyo (2022); Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial in Niigata, Japan (2022); “Actroid Series II” at TOKAS Hongo, Tokyo (2021-22); Bangkok Art Biennale (2020); Yokohama Triennale, Japan (2020); “Future and the Arts” at Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2019-20); “Post-Life: Art & Technology in the Age of Intelligence”, Beijing Media Art Biennale, China tour (2019-20); and “AS:Helix” at the National Museum of China (2019).
