Viola He is a Shanghai-born, Brooklyn-based design technologist, programmer, and interdisciplinary artist. Inspired and grounded by histories of subcultures and resistance movements, their creative practices engage with hardware, computing, movements and various time-based media, as pathways to explore alternative structures for humans and machines in a time of crisis.

Viola believes in the power of personal and collective narratives, and works to re-imagine systems and interfaces that decentralize communication and inspire mutual care among networks of people. Viola is also an active dancer and organizer in the swing and jazz dance communities, and thinks often about collective movements as a healing practice. 

Viola holds a B.A. in Communication from University of Southern California, and a M.P.S. from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunication Program (ITP).
