Mimi Onuoha is a Nigerian-American artist and researcher using data and code to explore new forms of storytelling, social critique, and interaction. Her work highlights the realities produced from the shaping and reformatting of culture, artifacts, and social structures into data through algorithmic and human processes. She is interested in the ways people, space and data overlap with and respond to one another. She has served as an adjunct professor at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), a fellow at Columbia University's Tow Center for Digital Journalism, and a Visiting Researcher at the Royal College of Art. Most recently she has been a fellow at the Data & Society Research Institute, where she is programmatically and interpersonally investigating missing datasets and strategies for intervention and response around data collection.
