Shuwan (b.1994) is a visual artist who lives and works in New York City. She received a BA in Sociology from the Australian National University (2016) and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts (2022). Her work explores the bridge between physical and digital spaces, objects, and experiences. She uses digital data from an archive of glitched images to make new photographs and sculptures with modeling software and machine learning to explore the vision of the future. She discovers new possibilities for what a glitch can generate, such as digital and physical objects, as well as the relationship between fragility and stability, machine-made and handmade, traditional photography making, and alternative processes in a metabolic way.
