Artist Statement

David Lu. Born 1974 in Queens, New York. Lives and works in Seattle.

David Lu's drawings embrace the algorithmic and the hand drawn. In his folded paper works, he makes imaginary maps that emerge from tiny marks made in an unplanned, yet rule-based way. His folds too are algorithmic, implying a bending of space. In his software work, he writes algorithms that turn signal — inputs that might include wacom tablet, touch, or kinect camera — into delicate marks on screen. Reading meaning from gesture is an important theme in David's approach.

Currently, David is learning to rotoscope, producing portraits in the style of modern cartoonists. He hopes to turn his learnings into algorithms that might turn a photographic image into cartoons.

David studied Computer Science at Rutgers and design at Interaction Design Institute Ivrea.
