Paul Gong Biography

Paul Gong (TW/US), born in 1988. He holds a BA in Industrial Design from the Chang Gung University in Taipei, Taiwan, and an MA in Design Interactions from the Royal College of Art in London, United Kingdom. He sees design is a research method and thinking tool to explore different possibilities, to criticise the past and the present, and to speculate the future. Design should stimulate debate, imagination, and reflection for people. It is also interesting for him to explore the aesthetics of the representation for possible futures. His project research focus is speculative design and topics related to biotechnology. His work has been exhibited at MAS, Museum aan de Stroom, Antwerp, Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, Taiwan Design Museum, Taipei, USC 5D Institute in Los Angeles, Future Gallery in Palo Alto, London, and Guangzhou. He currently works as an independent designer and artist of Ouroboros – Organic Organism of O (Artist Collective), and a part-time tutor of the Department of Industrial Design at Chang Gung University.
