Cyan Bae (she/they) is an award-winning visual artist and researcher based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Currently Cyan is a PhD Candidate in International Political Sociology at the Institute of Political Science, Leiden University. Cyan’s research focuses on the algorithmic governance and resistance around affective computing technologies in the field of security. This research is part of the ERC funded project The Algorithmic Security Politics of Computer Vision (Security Vision). Cyan’s artistic research and practice centres upon the politics of everyday and subversive practices around socio-technical systems, drawing on Critical Security Studies (CSS), Science and Technology Studies (STS), and Queer Theory. Methodologically, Cyan explores the intersections of visual ethnography and experimental/documentary filmmaking. Cyan’s latest film Dear Chaemin has been screened and awarded at inter/national film festivals. Cyan is also a co-founder of First Cut.
배채연은 네덜란드 로테르담을 기반으로 활동하는 시각예술가 및 연구자로, 현재 네덜란드 라이든대학교 정치학연구소에서 국제정치사회학 박사과정을 밟고 있다. 감성 컴퓨팅을 둘러싼 권력과 저항에 대해 연구하고 있으며, 이는 유럽연구이사회(ERC) 지원연구과제 시큐리티 비전 The Algorithmic Security Politics of Computer Vision (Security Vision)의 일환이다. 성균관대학교에서 신문방송학·시각디자인학을 공부하고 네덜란드 헤이그왕립예술학교에서 논리니어 내러티브 석사과정을 밟은 후 비판적 안보연구, 과학기술사회학(STS), 퀴어이론을 바탕으로 사회기술적 일상과 저항을 주제로 한 작품 활동을 이어가고 있다. 최근작인 단편 다큐멘터리 〈채민이에게〉는 국내외 다수 영화제에서 상영 및 수상했다. 시각적 참여관찰연구와 실험·다큐멘터리 포맷의 영상예술이 교차하는 방법론의 확장을 모색하고 있으며, 네덜란드 헤이그를 기반으로 하는 독립·급진·실험영화플랫폼 First Cut을 함께 만들고 운영하고 있다.
