Freddie Hong is a London-based new media/computational artist and researcher whose work explores the impact of emerging technology on our relationship with the physical world and society. Through interactive artwork and performance, his work explores the boundary between authorship and control in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Freddie has been hosting workshops on creative coding and machine learning at various universities in London, encouraging participants to experiment with “intelligent things” and engage in conversations about the role of digital agents in creative practices.

Freddie’s PhD research on HCI has been presented in numerous academic conferences and journals, such as the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, Springer Nature Computer Science and the Additive Manufacturing Journal. His work has also been featured in popular magazines like Dezeen, Fast Company, Hackaday and Make Magazine.

Freddie earned his bachelor’s degree in Architecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture UCL and his master’s degree in Computational Art at the Goldsmiths University of London. Freddie is close to completing his PhD at Imperial College London, where he is researching the fields of HCI and cyber-physical systems as part of the Systems and Algorithms Laboratory.

Previously, Freddie worked as an architectural designer at Asif Khan Studio, specialising in designing and prototyping interactive pavilions for architectural festivals. Projects include Hyundai Pavilion at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics and Public Realm at the 2020 Dubai Expo.
