Joanne K. Cheung is an artist and designer.



I study how people, buildings, and media contribute to democratic governance. I spend my time at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society and Harvard University Graduate School of Design.  

what I make:


Horizon: photographs of the ocean typeset into a book of poems. 

Unbuilt: a pavilion materializing 200 communally-sourced architectural designs that have never been built.


Beach: an art installation visualizing the post-climate change waterfront as a beach party.  

The Filmballad of Mamadada: a feature-length biopic of a Dada artist made by playing a game of exquisite corpse with 50 people.
