Roopa Vasudevan is an American artist, creative coder, and researcher, currently based in New York, NY and Shanghai, China. Her work explores the influence and impact that our increasingly digital and tech-reliant way of life has on culture, politics, and real world behaviors - and the ways in which technology can reveal patterns and biases in our real-life social systems. She utilizes publicly available data collected over long periods of time, ranging from social media posts to photos, audio and video, which is then run through custom algorithms that extract similarities, differences, and potential underlying meaning.
Roopa's work has been exhibited internationally, and featured on Reuters, PBS NewsHour, Slate, Hyperallergic, Jezebel, Complex, PSFK, the FADER, Public Radio International, and more, as well as on American, French and German television. She holds a BA from Columbia University, and an MPS from NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), where she also served as a post-graduate research fellow during academic year 2013-2014. She is a member of the Flux Factory artist collective and community (based in Queens, NY) and is currently an Assistant Arts Professor of Interactive Media Arts at NYU Shanghai.
