Xuan is a new media artist, filmmaker, and pianist working at the intersection of music, visual art, and technology.
A trained classical pianist with a passion for ‘visual music,’ she develops innovative, cross-disciplinary projects that broaden the scope of new music and performance. Her work encompasses experimental animation, abstract scenography, music videos, interactive installations and large-scale projection mapping. Her music-driven films explore themes of femininity, power, inner conflict, and multicultural identity.
Xuan was selected to create projections for Art on theMART (2021), ‘the largest permanent digital art projection in the world,’ in collaboration with Eighth Blackbird and Michael Gordon. Other collaborators have included Glenn Kotche, Third Coast Percussion, and the Akropolis Quintet. Her interactive installations have been exhibited all over the world, and she has performed live at venues such as Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Xuan is a graduate of Eastman in piano performance and studied media spaces at the BTK University of Art and Design in Berlin. She has taught experimental filmmaking at Eastman since 2016, and was the 2023 Artist-in-Residence at the Digital Graffiti Festival at Alys Beach.
