Eunsu Kang is a media artist from Korea. She creates audiovisual spaces that interacts with people. Her interest in a body without a “normal” communicative method and its metamorphosis into a “singing” body has been embodied using interactive video, spatialized sound, site-specific installation and performing art idioms. Creating interdisciplinary projects, her signature has been seamless integration of art disciplines and innovative techniques. Her work has been invited to numerous places around the world including Japan, China, Switzerland, Sweden, France, Germany, Korea and the US. All nine of her solo shows, consisting of individual or collaborative projects, were invited or awarded. She has won the Korean National Grant for Arts three times. Her research has been presented at prestigious conferences such as ACM, ICMC and ISEA.

Kang earned her Ph.D. in Digital Arts and Experimental Media from DXARTS at the University of Washington. She received an MA in Media Arts and Technology from UCSB and an MFA from the Ewha Woman's University. Kang is currently an Assistant Professor of New Media Art at the University of Akron in Ohio, USA. She has brought the knowledge and techniques of interactive technology, digital art as well as creative interdisciplinary projects to the students at the University of Akron. She also started the New Media Minor with supports from several faculty members across the campus and has established three New Media courses.
