Nitcha (fame) Tothong (thai: ณิชชา โตทอง-เฟม) is a Thai interdisciplinary media artist, coder, and designer based in Lenapehoking (Brooklyn, NY.) Tothong’s work focuses on cross-medium pollination and the juxtaposition between digital/computational and analog that inform each other to create, investigate, and express sensory experience and conscious experience, reconfiguring views that are created from soft power and contemporary technology’s impact on daily life. 

Tothong has been a former artist-in-residence at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity and Babycastles, among others, and also a co-founder and 1/2 of elekhlekha, an art collective with Kengchakaj, which was awarded the lumen prize gold award in 2022.

Tothong’s projects have been featured in the media, including Fast Company, T3, Adafruit, NHK World (Japan), and IdN World (Hong Kong), as well as being exhibited at major festivals, galleries, and institutions, including SXSW, A.I.R Gallery, Westbeth Gallery, IndieCade East and the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey, as well as the industry-leading annual global event, ISWC.

Eyebeam models a new approach to artist-led creation for the public good; we are a non-profit that provides significant professional support and money to exceptional artists for the realization of important ideas that wouldn’t exist otherwise. Nobody else is doing this.
