Kyle McDonald is an artist working with code. He is a contributor to open source arts-engineering toolkits like openFrameworks, and builds tools that allow artists to use new algorithms in creative ways. He has a habit of sharing ideas and projects in public before they're completed. He creatively subverts networked communication and computation, explores glitch and systemic bias, and extends these concepts to reversal of everything from identity to relationships. Kyle has been an adjunct professor at NYU's ITP, and a member of F.A.T. Lab, community manager for openFrameworks, and artist in residence at STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon, as well as YCAM in Japan. His work is commissioned by and shown at exhibitions and festivals around the world, including: NTT ICC, Ars Electronica, Sonar/OFFF, Eyebeam, Anyang Public Art Project, Cinekid, CLICK Festival, NODE Festival, and many others. He frequently leads workshops exploring computer vision and interaction.
He has worked at YCAM on the "ProCamToolkit" (2011) as part of the Guest Research Project vol.1 and on the "Reactor for Awareness in Motion (RAM)" (2012-2013), and exhibited Kyle McDonald "I Eat Beats" (2011) , Daito Manabe + Kyle McDonald + Zachary Lieberman + Theodore Watson "The Janus Machine" (2011)
