Yuqian Sun

I’m Yuqian Sun, an AI artist and researcher. I’m currently a doctoral student at the Royal College of Art. I’m also a crypto artist on SuperRare, the top NFT platform.

My main interest is in AI Narratives, particularly in from of chatbots with persona and stories. How will story context influence players’ perception, including emotional engagement and interest, towards AI agents? Through conversational agents, I aim to create "live" narrative experiences that can happen beyond games and in our daily lives. I explore this topic through chatbots in communities, games, and expanded art projects.

My works and research presented at galleries and conferences including SIGGRAPH Asia Art Gallery, Foundation of Digital Games(FDG) , ISEA, ACM Multimedia, BBA Gallery Berlin, Seoul Media Facade, Shanghai Aiiiii Art Center and New York Times Square. My work is also shortlisted on 2022 Lumen Prize.
