Golan Levin develops artifacts and experiences that explore the expressive use of computation. Through performances, digital artifacts, and virtual environments, Levin applies creative twists to digital technologies that highlight our relationship with machines, make visible our ways of interacting with each other, and explore the intersection of abstract communication and interactivity. Levin has exhibited widely in Europe, America and Asia.
Levin's work has been presented in the Whitney Biennial; the New Museum of Contemporary Art (NYC); the Ars Electronica Center in Linz, Austria; The Museum of Contemporary Art in Taipei, Taiwan; the NTT InterCommunication Center (ICC) in Tokyo, Japan; and the Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie (ZKM). He has received grants from Creative Capital, The New York State Council on the Arts, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Rockefeller MAP Fund, The Greenwall Foundation, the Langlois Foundation, and the Arts Council of England.
His undergraduate and graduate degrees are from the MIT Media Laboratory, in the Aesthetics and Computation Group. Currently, Levin is Director of the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry and an Associate Professor of Electronic Time-Based Art at Carnegie Mellon University.
