Jack B. Du graduated from New York University Shanghai, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and Interactive Media Arts.
Du rediscovered his passion for drawing while studying at NYU New York, and later, he studied Visual Arts at NYU Abu Dhabi. For his capstone project, Du built Minus E, a robot that creates large-scale drawings, whose work won the 5th place in the 2017 Robot Art Competition. The development of Minus E made Du realize his deep interest in the creation of traditional visual art with aid of modern technology like computer vision and robotics, which often explores the human visual perception of pixelated visual art.
