Goh U is an artist working in the field of Art & Technology. (known as Goh Uozumi)
His works have focused on the ‘automation movements in civilization,’ in which humans use technology to mechanize intelligence, contracts, labor, creation, trust, and life.

He studied Media Art under professor Seiko Mikami and works with an algorithm-based methodology that is capable of including non-human intelligence/existence.  His long-term mission is to intervene in historical paradigm shifts through art.

In 2020, he showed New Economic War that is being waged in today’s world, where mass-less things have come to be operated as *resources*, at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo.
Exploring the increasingly complex technologies and structures of domination, the work questions autonomy/self-sovereignty within the world system, or democracy in the essential sense of whether we can decide for ourselves.

Since 2015, he has released three works reflecting on the world transformation through algorithms, taking advantage of the emergence of cryptocurrency, a technology that has successfully mechanized *trust,* once the exclusive property of nature, like love, etc., that is, making ‘God’ socially unnecessary in ‘In God We Trust.’
空の国家 -State of Empty that artificial intelligence creates a nation for itself, and New Order/Siren Call?  that visualizes cryptocurrency and distributed ledger as an origin of new social order were created as commissioned works by NTT InterCommunicationCenter[ICC] in 2016.
And the origin of the both works, Trustless Trust/Mk.God that evokes memories of future artificial systems won the grand prize of Digital Choc Award 2015 by Institut Francais Tokyo, Zinc, and SecondNature.

In 2014, he belonged to Waseda University’s Lab for Molecular Cell Network as a visiting researcher of Bio Art.

In his early career, OBSERVER N that extends theory-of-life reality by decentralized autonomous network system, was commissioned by The Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media[YCAM] in 2012, and his first major work, F – void sample that goes across the void and perception, won the excellence prize of the 2009 Japan Media Art Festival.
