Ekene Ijeoma has removed all bad design from his life (except for streets)

By Diana Budds

Ekene Ijeoma is a media artist known for interactive installations that explore social issues, systemic injustice, and human connection. His recent projects include Breathing Pavilion, an installation of nine-foot-tall inflatable columns in Downtown Brooklyn that dimmed and brightened at a meditative pace; Wage Islands, a topographic visualization of housing affordability in New York, which appeared at the Museum of the City of New York; and A Counting, a “linguistic portrait” of U.S. dialects and languages featuring crowdsourced recordings of people counting to 100. Ijeoma also directs the Poetic Justice Group at the MIT Media Lab.
