Chanee ChoiAssistant Professorat University of New Mexico
Chanee Choi is a transdisciplinary artist. She has developed a ritualistic craft-based art practice that transcends the conservative and isolationist roots of traditional East Asian craftwork by focusing on a celebration of feminist theory and modern tech. Within this hybrid genre, she produces both embodied and virtual immersive experiences exploring the effect of immigration on issues of identity, and the synesthetic processes of corporeal-cognitive space.
She is originally from South Korea and now lives, works, and studies in Syracuse, New York. She earned her BFA in Craft Design from Dongduk Women’s University in 2013 and MFA in Fiber and Material Studies from the Art Institute of Chicago in 2016. Choi earned a Ph.D. in 3D animation, ML, and Games at DXARTS at the University of Washington.
She had solo and double solo shows at School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2014), Kneet Hole Gallery, HaeBang Chon, Seoul (2016), Space 776, Brooklyn, NY (2017), PIQUE Gallery Covington, KY (2017), and Oxbow, Seattle, Washington (2019). Her work has been published in UW News, UW College of Arts & Sciences, GeekWire, International Examiner, Seattle Times, KUOW National Public Radio, KING-TV, ISEA2022 Barcelona, SIGGRAPH Asia 2022 and WIRED magazine.
