Ryan Kuo works in New York, NY. His most recent solo exhibition was The Pointer at bitforms gallery. You can purchase his procedural whiteness simulator here.

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, sampling, etc. He is building an artist’s book about aspirational workflows, File: A User’s Manual, modeled after software guides for power users. Recent interests include containers, motivation, and whiteness.

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

His works and writing have appeared at the Queens Museum (NYC), bitforms gallery (NYC), the Current Museum of Art (NYC), Spike Art Quarterly (Berlin), Goldsmiths (London), Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts (Cambridge, MA), and MIT Media Lab (Cambridge, MA), among other venues. He has recently been a resident at the Queens Museum Studio Program (NYC) and Residency Unlimited (NYC). Here’s a patchy CV.
