RAY LC’s practice creates interaction environments for building bonds between humans and machines. He uses human-computer interaction and speculative narratives approaches in diverse media to probe the ways humans adapt to technologies and machines in the context of spatial environmental influences. He takes perspectives from his own research in neuroscience (pubs in Nature Communications, J. Neurosci) and in HCI (pubs in CHI, CSCW, DIS, TEI, Frontiers, etc.) in his artistic practice, with notable exhibitions at BankArt, New York Hall of Science, KYOTO Design Lab, Elektra Montreal, Ars Electronica Linz, NeON Digital Arts, New Museum, CICA Museum, NYC Short Documentary Film Festival, NeurIPS, Deconstrukt NYC, Angewandte Festival, Elektron Tallinn, Floating Projects, Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre, Osage Gallery, Soho House, Videotage, Goethe Institute, Hong Kong Arts Centre, Science Gallery MSU Detroit, IEEE VISAP, SIGGRAPH Asia.

RAY comes from Cal Berkeley EECS-Math (BS), UCLA Neuroscience (PHD), Parsons School of Design (MFA). His current work uses human-computer interaction and art-technology interventions to probe our spatial relationship with machines. He has been awarded by National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Verizon Connected Futures, Adobe Design Award, Microsoft Imagine Cup, Kone Foundation, Davis Peace Foundation, NY Foundation for the Arts, Hong Kong Arts Development Council, CityU Innovative Learning Award, Lumen Prize.
