Presented in collaboration with the Carnegie Museum of Art

Ian Cheng’s immersive works of digital simulation draw on his background in cognitive science and employ rudimentary forms of artificial intelligence. His practice explores human experience and interaction through “live simulations” or “video games that play themselves.” His open-ended digital simulation Emissary Sunsets The Self will be on view at the Carnegie Museum of Art from September 22, 2017 through January 28, 2018.
