Natasha Chuk is a critical theorist, writer, and independent curator whose research and interests focus on the affordances and limitations of creative technologies as systems of language at the intersection of formality, expression, interface, and human perception. She holds a PhD in Philosophy, Art and Critical Thought, an MA in Media Studies, and a BA in Cinema Studies. Her first book, Vanishing Points: Articulations of Death, Fragmentation, and the Unexperienced Experience of Created Objects (Intellect, 2015), is a close study of the relationship between presence and absence across a variety of media, including film, photography, and video games. Her essays have appeared in Dissect Journal, First Person Scholar, Interartive, Metaverse Creativity Journal (now Virtual Creativity Journal), and others. She teaches courses in film studies, digital cultures, and aesthetics at the School of Visual Arts and The New School in New York City.
