Special Technology Related Art Exhibition by

Artist: David Yi Wang

David is a practicing attorney, a legal technologist and a painter. Representing startup companies and venture investors by day, by night David often questions the meaning of the changes brought by technologies such as artificial intelligence, social media, and digitization. Will beauty still matter in a world of algorithmic decisions? Why do we feel so alone in man’s most connected era? Artistic exploration of these questions is often lost in the frantic pursuit of efficiency, innovation and profits. Instagram: @davidywang
