The Poet Engineer

The Poet Engineer (Kat Zhang, IG @the.poet.engineer) is a Brooklyn-based media artist, engineer, and researcher interested in living and simulated systems and computational cognition. She uses code and algorithms to create multi-sensory works that investigate how computation can reveal the unconscious and poetic aspects of the human and machine psyche.
More recently, she’s interested in artificial life forms and how encoded information like DNA and human language lead to complex, open-ended evolution. Her next project is an audio visual installation, to be shown at Gray Area this December, upon culmination of her incubator residency there.
