Molmol Kuo is an artist, and a technology researcher for humanity, she creates art that aims to interact with people.
With a background in documentary film making, and a penchant of “doing weird things with electricity”, she builds tools that help her tell stories and make art that breaks the barriers between human and object in a surprising and funny way.
Molmol spent one year interviewing residents at an isolated leprosy community in Northern Taiwan. This had a great effect on her work and shifted her focus. Her film on homelessness, youth, and social justice: “Treasure Hill”, was screened at Scope Art Fair at MOMA, Basel, 2007. In 2011, she created a robotic video sculpture that speaks on sex trafficking survivors in New York. Her interactive LED installation, Connecting Light, was part of the London 2012 Festival, occupied the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site over seventy miles.
She had worked on organizing events ranging from street movements, underground raves, electronic arts and music festivals. She still dreams of doing so in the near future.
Molmol received an M.P.S. at the Interactive Telecommunications Program, NYU.
Molmol is a partner at YESYESNO Interactives.
