Biography

RAY LC explores our own stories about the way we adapt to technologies. His interdisciplinary art-design-science practice creates interactions and narrative environments for building bonds between humans and machines. Taking a PhD from UCLA, and MFA from Parsons School of Design, RAY takes perspective from his previous research in neuroscience (Nature, J. Neurosci, Frontiers in Psych.) into his art-design and HCI practice, with recent work exhibited at New York Hall of Science, Ars Electronica Linz, Saari Residency, New Museum, NeurIPS, Angewandte Festival, Osage Gallery, Videotage, Goethe Institute, Hong Kong Arts Centre, PMQ, Science Gallery Detroit, IEEE VISAP, SIGGRAPH Asia, Kyoto Design Lab; and published in venues like CHI, CSCW, DIS, HRI. RAY founded the Studio for Narrative Spaces: https://recfro.github.io/
