Dongpu Ling is an intermedia artist based in Los Angeles. She works at the intersection of interactive installation and performance art, exploring the space among digital and physical entities by creating a multidisciplinary relationship with machine intelligence. She is fascinated with various aspects of the unseen, including body senses, data transformation, and theoretical physics. Her work spans multiple media formats, including interactive installations, sculptures, videos, and performance art. In her mind and world, time does not exist without a soul/ observer, and art does not exist without viewers.
Dongpu started her work in visual media, including video and sculpture. Soon afterward, she began exploring interactive media, including algorithm-based mechanics, real-time sensory feedback, and artificial intelligence. She received a B.F.A. in Intermedia Art from Arizona State University in 2018, an M.F.A. in Art & Technology, and a concentration in Integrated Media from the California Institute of the Arts in 2021. Her work has been shown at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center, The College Book Art Association, Tin Flats, MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Coaxial Arts Foundation, and Santa Clarita City Hall.
