Chia Amisola (b. 2000) is an internet & ambient artist from Manila, Philippines. ( More )
Through 'internet ambient', their work is situated in the internet's ecologies (and thus, its invisibles & systems): in the website as material to construct worlds, tools, & environments; in ambience's politics of visibility, defaults, and infrastructures—to make an internet where we can be heard. Their (web)site-specific art investigates technology's love, labor, and liberation, supposing creation as synonymous with liberation.
They graduated with a BA in Computing & the Arts with distinction from Yale University in 2022, receiving the Sudler Prize for the creative arts. Their work, talks, and performances have been shown in Berlin, London, San Francisco, New York, Brisbane, Toronto, New Haven, and Manila.
Chia is the Founder & Organizer of Developh, a critical technology institute based in the Philippines, and stewards the Philippine Internet Archive. Currently, they are a NEW INC Art & Code member and a incubator member at Gray Area.
