Anastasia Davydova Lewis b. Moscow 3.14 1995
I am a student at the Design | Media Arts department at UCLA.
Various short bios I've written in the past specify that I am a writer, filmmaker, designer, gauche caviar, etc ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Lately I've been feeling more like an artist - entrepreneur with a pedagogical research based practice.
–– 2019 founded nootreats, a functional food startup focusing in superfood gummies
–– 2018 started teaching kids how to program at UCode
–– 2018 summer led DeepDenial workshop in Amsterdam
–– Ongoing work with Dis.art
–– 2017 summer worked as a research fellow at Are.na
email me to talk about:
research-based practices, artificial intelligence, deep learning, technologically engaged art, futurist banter, complaining that speculative realism is "out", mass entrepreneurship nausea, alternative startup funding, terrible pop music, East Bloc house, ecocapitalism, nootropics, hormones, the quantified self, human biodiversity, cool cults, neoshamanism, & UCLA resources.
critical design, Russian propaganda, cryptocurrencies, modeling inquiries
