Paul Gong was born in the USA in 1988.. He was awarded his BA in Industrial Design from the Chang Gung University in Taipei, Taiwan, and his MA in Design Interactions from the Royal College of Art in London, UK. He is a speculative designer and artist. He currently works as an independent designer and artist for Ouroboros - Organic Organism of O - and as a part-time tutor in the Department of Industrial Design at Chang Gung University. His work has been exhibited at MAS, the Museum aan de Stroom, Antwerp, the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, the Taiwan Design Museum and Yiri Arts in Taipei, the USC 5D Institute in Los Angeles, Future Gallery in Palo Alto, London, and Guangzhou. He sees design as both a research method and thinking tool through which to explore different possibilities, to criticize the past and the present, and to speculate on the future. Design should stimulate debate, imagination, and reflection for people. He is also interested in exploring the aesthetics of representation for possible futures. His work attempts to invoke new discussions on the relationships between humans, animals, nature, and emerging technologies.
