Brief Introduction

Hello! I am Tra – a media artist-designer. Currently, I am a senior lecturer and researcher at Ton Đuc Thang University, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

By observing the transformation of various emerging phenomena in everyday life, my research explores the new structures in society, culture, and art, and this research often serves as a background for my artistic practice. I am currently engaged with a research-based artistic project related to cyberspace, surveillance capitalism, cyber colonialism, and creativity in the age of AI and automation. I am also involved in various discourses on artistic research and practice in higher education with European and Asian academic communities.

My work materializes in various media, such as design, video, interactive media, installation, etc., and texts.

I have participated in several media art and design exhibitions and festivals in Asia and Europe, my works were shown at Bucharest Biennale 9 (Romania), Archives Bordeaux Metropole (France), Artus Studio (Hungary), Aula Exhibition Hall (Hungry), Chiang Mai Art Center (Thailand), Women’s Museum (Vietnam), Vietnamese National Exhibition of Applied Arts (Vietnam), etc.
