Shobun Baile is an artist and filmmaker currently working in New York City. Spanning film, sculpture, audio and photography, his recent work is project-based and has explored technologies that organise and regulate the movement of people, value and thought.
He focuses on images and scenarios that collapse the line between the symbolic and the technical, and that weave disparate experiences of the technological present. He studied at the Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main, received an MFA from Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Art and was a fellow in the Core Program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
His work has recently been presented at Salzburger Kunstverein, New York Film Festival, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and the European Media Art Festival. He has had residencies at Storm King Art Center, New Windsor, and SOMA, Mexico City.
