Chloé Desaulles is a [NYC-based]
computational artist, filmmaker and researcher. 
Select clients include Versace, The New York Times, Mercury Records, The MET, The CFDA, Louis Vuitton & Alicia Keys


I work at the intersection of filmmaking, programming, neuroscience and media design, often drawn to how emerging technologies can be used to tell visual and journalistic narratives about people. I’m interested in constructing frameworks where the analog and digital can interact in complementary ways, often surrounding themes of family, memory and home. As a rule of thumb, I believe influential and successful work stems from curious inquiry, experimentation and research.

I am currently a student at The School For Poetic Computation and am also a member of the artist studio LARPA. Stay tuned for future events and exhibits.


Previously at DE-YAN studio working in art direction and experiential design for clients in luxury, fashion and tech, followed by The New York Times R&D where I was lucky to research the future of visual and immersive storytelling, I am now running my own studio, directing and designing for clients such as The Brooklyn Museum, Something Special Studios, Bad Binch Tong Tong, Buck Design or Local Projects.


I hold an Interdisciplinary Bachelor from Carnegie Mellon University in Neuroscience and New Media and an additional minor in Intelligent Environements.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any inquiries! I’m always available for freelance work in creative direction, video work, creative tech, curation and consulting.
