Short Bio: 
TC Zhou is an LA-based computational media artist. He combines creative coding with gay literature written in classical Chinese. He blends programming and natural languages (in both Chinese and English) to create generative art that is interactive and animated. His work is driven by machine intelligence, producing endless variations. In addition, TC Zhou creates experimental queer games that explore queer lives. TC Zhou's games draw on his own experiences and have covered topics such as gay liberation, sex education, destigmatization, queer temporality, and the human sexuality spectrum. TC Zhou received an MFA in media arts from UCLA and a B.S. in Computer Science from NYU. He was a panelist at the UCLA Queer Graduate Research Conference (2022 & 2023). His work was shown at V2_ lab (Rotterdam), Art Machines 2 (CityU Hong Kong), SIGGRAPH DAC SPARKS, Top Art Space (Guangzhou), UCLA, and Spectra Studio (Los Angeles).
