E Roon Kang lives and works in New York, where he operates an interdisciplinary design studio, Math Practice. He works in print, web, environmental graphics, as well as interactive installations, with interest in studying, evaluating, and criticizing complex systems and its consequential pointlessness of a pursuit of efficiency.
E Roon is a recently appointed TED Fellow (2012), and was previously a research fellow at SENSEable City Laboratory of MIT (2009–2010) – following paths of trashed objects, imagining new form of public three-dimensional display, or taking part in re-inventing electronic bicycles.
His work has been shown at many places in different contexts, including the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Platform 2009 of Seoul, Seattle Public Library, and the Architectural League of New York. E Roon's work has won NSF Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge in 2010, and during the same year, he was a recipient of Young Guns award from The Art Directors Club.
He studied graphic design at School of Visual Arts (BFA) and Yale University (MFA), and taught courses at Rutgers University and Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, and is a adjunct professor at ITP.
