Artist Bio

Andrew Thomas Huang


Characterized by his use of multidisciplinary aesthetics, Andrew Thomas Huang is an experimental filmmaker whose work bridges the gap between film and video art. Huang's work has been exhibited at MoMA and MoMA PS1, New York, the Barbican Center, London, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors Showcase at Cannes Lions.


Björk Guðmundsdóttir


Björk is a multifaceted Icelandic singer, composer, and musician. First gaining international recognition as a punk-rock vocalist, she has expanded the experience of her music to include theatrical presentation, audio guides, and visualizations. Her innovative approach reached new levels with the release of her album Biophilia, consisting entirely of interactive apps. Pushing boundaries even further, Björk is the first artist to meaningfully use VR as a platform for artistic expression.
