Owen Roberts
is an artist, writer and educator currently based in Brooklyn, New York and Shanghai, China. His work explores using traditional drawing, writing and animation methods with new media platforms such as mobile phone applications, websites and video games. He uses new technologies for unintended purposes, like telling stories through corrupted images on a discarded flip phone, building video games no objectives or using software to write poetry. He is interested in works that appear crude and ridiculous at first but slowly reveal new meanings through exploration and interaction. He is currently an Assistant Arts Professor at NYU Shanghai and has previously taught at the Borough of Manhattan Community College and The College of New Jersey. He has exhibited work in the US and Canada, as well as in the iTunes Store and Google Play Store.
