배채연은 네덜란드에서 활동하는 시각예술가-연구자이다. 현재 라이든대학교 정치학연구소에서 국제정치사회학 박사과정을 밟고 있다. 감성컴퓨팅 기술의 등장이 알고리즘 통치와 저항을 어떻게 재편하는지에 대해 연구하고 있으며, 이 연구는 유럽연구이사회(ERC) 지원사업 The Algorithmic Security Politics of Computer Vision (Security Vision)의 일환이다. 다큐멘터리, 비주얼 저널리즘, 디자인 등을 연구 방법론으로 바탕에 두고 사회기술적 담론 속 비/가시성에 대해 탐구한다. 작품 활동을 통해서는 기술-시각문화 속 인프라로서의 시스-헤테로정상성을 탐문해 왔다. 최근작인 단편 다큐멘터리 <채민이에게>는 국내외 다수 영화제에서 상영 및 수상했다. First Cut을 함께 만들고 운영하고 있다.
