Nikita Pashenkov was born in the former Soviet Union, lived in the USA since 1991, and in Japan between 2003-2004.

Pashenkov earned a bachelor’s Degree with Honors from Architecture School at Princeton University and a Master of Science from MIT.

Pashenkov has worked as a researcher with Aesthetics & Computation Group at the MIT Media Laboratory and later at GK Tech Inc, a branch of the Japanese industrial design conglomerate GK Design Group.

His work investigates the intersection between design, programming, and electronics technology. It has been featured in exhibitions at MoMA (New York), Institute of Contemporary Art (London), Eyebeam (New York), and Ginza Gallery (Tokyo).

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.
