Elvin Ou is currently a graduate student at Tisch School of Art, NYU studying Interactive Telecommunications, and holding a BFA in interior design at Pratt Institute.

 

He is a maker, digital artist and designer who aims to encourage interaction between human experience and the physical environment. In the contemporary moment, the contradiction of maximizing flexibility and our desire to present personal stories puts stress on the prescriptiveness of design. Elvin wants to design in that tension between a given narrative and the individual experience. He believes that the key to unlocking the nuance in this delicate balance is through an added layer of digital experience. His creative thinking, design skills and technology are used to manipulate a wide gamut of tools in order to shorten the bridge of communication.
