Nitipak SAMSEN

Born in Thailand in 1979; lives and works in the U.K.
Samsen is an artist who explores the paradoxes of everyday life with a playful spirit. He deals with the mutual interactions between users and objects, and his activities range from programming to producing devices and video works. After studying architecture at Silpakorn University in Thailand, he attended and graduated from the Design Interactions programme at the Royal College of Art (RCA) in London. He is currently involved in social projects and in creating media art in public spaces, as co-founder and designer at the London-based interaction design team Umbrellium. He won first prize at the 2011 Future of Money Design Award, and the Special Jury Award at BIO23, the Biennal of Design in Slovenia. For KENPOKU ART 2016, he has produced works that use as motifs the concrete tetrapods along the coast, which have drawn his interest since his first visit to Japan.
