Agnes Cameron is a hardware and software developer, whose work explores complex systems using agent-based models. Her recent artistic work includes a weather- and market-simulation "The First 1000 Years", a digital artwork developed with Gary Zhexi Zhang commissioned by Arts Catalyst and Bloc Projects. As a visiting artist at Sakiya, she collaborated with Zhang on the digital ecology "Permaculture Network" (2019), since exhibited at Akademie Schloss Solitude.

Agnes works professionally with artists to conceive and develop technically ambitious work for installation, sculpture and performance. She is a co-director of the design and research studio Foreign Objects, where she has worked on projects exploring experimental chatbots, generative machine learning, and the decentralised web.

During this residency, Agnes will focus on building collaborative relationships with artists, and on developing new solo work around computer embodiment that she explored as toolmaker-in-residence at Signal Culture in 2019.
