Biography

Ada Ada Ada (she/her or they/them, 1992, Denmark), based in Copenhagen.

Ada Ada Ada is an algorithmic artist, who works within an intersectional eco-feminist framework.

She works with gender and bodies as perceived by computers through algorithms, software, "artificial intelligence" and more.

Ada moves between art forms, and so far, her practice has included performative photography, generative art, net art, writing, interactive installations as well as live "artificial intelligence" performance.

The question at the heart of Ada's art practice is: How can algorithms be used to understand and challenge experiences of gender and bodies in novel ways?

She combines data, theory and computation to view human experience through new lenses and perspectives.

Her work often deals directly with societal struggles, concerns and politics, for example through data visualization or performative engagements, and her identity as a trans woman often informs the work she does.

Ada has a background as a web developer and interaction designer. She earned an MSc in Interaction Design at Malmö University in 2019 and a BSc in Digital Media and Design from the IT-University of Copenhagen in 2017.

In 2015, she co-founded the interactive art studio Circuit Circus, and finally went solo as an artist in late 2021.

Ada's works have been exhibited in Copenhagen, New York, Paris, Valencia, Berlin and more.
