Ryan Kuo works in New York, NY and Cambridge, MA.

He holds a Master of Science in Art, Culture and Technology from MIT. Here's his thesis.

His work tends to invoke a person or people arguing. This is not to state an argument about a thing, but to be caught in a state of argument.

Ryan utilizes techniques gleaned from video games, web design, motion graphics, sample-based music, etc. He is currently building an artist’s book about aspirational workflows, File: A User’s Manual, modeled after software guides for power users. Other recent interests include containers, motivation, and whiteness.

His works and writing have most recently shown at Spike Art Quarterly (Berlin), Goldsmiths (London), Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts (Cambridge, MA), Boston Cyberarts (Boston), MIT Media Lab (Cambridge, MA), Front/Space (Kansas City), and Minibar (Stockholm). In summer 2017 he was an NEA Art Works resident artist at Residency Unlimited (New York City).

Here is an interview on one of his past lives.
