Juan Pablo García Sossa is a designer, researcher and artist based in Bogota and fascinated by the clash between emerging technologies and grass-root popular culture in tropical territories. His practice explores the development of cultures, visions, realities and worlds through the remix and reappropriation of technologies from a Tropikós perspective (Tropics as a Region and Mindset). Sossa studied Design at Universidad de Los Andes and has a BA and MA in Visual Communication at The University of The Arts UdK Berlin, where he was mainly at the Digital Class from Joachim Sauter and Class Ai Weiwei. He has been part of diverse research institutions and design studios and currently is a member of SAVVY Contemporary’s Design Department and Co-Director of Estación Terrena, a space for Arts, Research and Technologies in Bogotá. Sossa is a 2020 Rapid Response for a Better Digital Future Fellow at EYEBEAM.
