Kat Mustatea makes art in the age of intelligent machines.
Her TED talk examines the meaning of machines making art, looking at what new art forms arise as society shifts radically toward autonomous, algorithmic behavior. Her writing about the cutting edge of art and technology appears in Forbes, The Week, and Hyperallergic.
A high school math prodigy, she studied philosophy at Columbia University and sculpture at Pratt institute. She founded a theater company in Berlin and has spent the last decade developing cross-disciplinary works for the stage that combine music, dance, and highly emotional theater. Her plays have been performed in New York, Chicago, Berlin, and Oslo.
As a technologist, she has worked as a software engineer and product manager, and is now a freelance consultant. She is currently a resident at TED while writing a book about art in the age of machine intelligence.
