David Young

Artist & Founder | Triplecode.com

David Young has spent his entire career at the leading edge of emerging technologies. In 2018, after almost thirty years of doing client-based design innovation, he shifted to generative and AI-based art.

His current work explores how beauty and aesthetic experiences can give a fresh start to how we think about new technologies. This work, which uses AI and machine learning, is a return to his roots where he began his career at the height of the 1980’s AI boom.

Over the course of his career he founded a cutting-edge design studio, worked for design agencies, worked in-house, and independently consulted. He has served on the board of AIGA/LA, and taught at both Art Center College of Design and Parsons at The New School. His design work has been recognized with a wide range of press and awards — including a Gold Medal from Businessweek & IDSA.

David has a masters degree in visual studies from the MIT Media Lab, and a bachelors degree in computer science from UCSC.

David is based in Brooklyn, NY.
