Barak Chamo / USA

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.

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.
