Lisa Kori

artist, creative producer

Lisa Kori Chung is an artist, creative producer and researcher working in the realms of sound art, performance, and the future of fashion. As a 2010-2011 Watson Fellow, she documented various communities that formed around technologically-based art practices. This interest in collaboration and community building, as well as bridging different forms of knowledge, has continued throughout her projects. These include Open Fit (with Kyle McDonald), an open source clothing workflow that brings pattern making knowledge into the Processing environment, Pianokosmos (with Tal Isaac Hadad and Dawid Gorny), a reactive system that illuminates nuances of a performerʻs gestures, and Sway (with Caitlin Morris), an immersive sound installation that aims to connect physical and sonic textures.

Currently an artist-in-residence at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center and working as a freelance creative producer for design, branding and web projects.
