Born 1985, Taiwan

New Media Artist, Creative Technologist, Interaction Designer, Playful Educator.

Kuan-Ju Wu is interested in creating delightful interactions between humans, machines, and environments. He builds immersive experience and tangible interfaces that borrow facets from the shapes and movements of nature, from the stories about the future machines, and the perceptual memories from our early childhood, those intuitive, rich and satisfying experiences. He has shown work in such venues as Ars Electronica, Linz; Japan Media Art Festival, Tokyo; and Current New Media Art Festival, Santa Fe.

Kuan-Ju sees teaching as art. In addition to illustrating technical knowledge he enjoys engaging in the constructive thinking process with students. He has led courses and workshops at universities and communities in the topics such as Making Thing Interactive (CMU), Robotic Bug Workshop (Assemble Gallery), Drawing Machine (RISD), Sensor Driven Storytelling - Internet of Trees (RISD). He is currently teaching DES-INV 23 Creative Programming and Electronics at UC Berkeley Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation.

Kuan-Ju Wu received his Master’s in Tangible Interaction Design from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA and his Bachelor in Electronics Engineering from National Chiao Tung University in Taiwan.
