Stephen x Zimmerer is a designer based in the Pearl River Delta whose work is concerned with the implications of an emergent digital ecology. Drawing upon realities including CCTV recording and fundamentally unknowable networks of digital sprawl, his work employs tactics from observational drawing to speculative design in order to critique systems which erode human autonomy. He has worked for international design practices including TLS Landscape Architecture and Counts Studio, and he currently freelances for boutique research practices in Hong Kong and Shenzhen. He has completed art installations and exhibitions for the Seoul Biennale of Architecture, AssBook Group, Buffalo Art Studios, and Satellite Art Fair. He is currently the recipient of a studio grant from Hong Kong Design Trust.
