Angelique De Castro

Welcome. I'm a visual artistic technologist crafting stories and experiences that center marginalized narratives. My art practice is focused on co-creating art that positions recontextualized history as an avenue for possible futures that inspire, educate, and galvanize. I am also a Senior Software Engineer at The New York Times engineering reader and editorial-facing news products.

I'm an alum of the virtual artist-in-residence program at the Asian American Art Alliance (A4). This interactive recipe commissioned for the celebration of Lunar New Year with A4 was kind of written up in The New York Times. I have worked with a jazz composer and a Grammy nominated jazz pianist to augment their live performances with animations. I was a programmer on a project about censorship that garnered backlash from the Chinese government. I'm a technologist and animator for Decolonized Tarot, a psychic performance and Filipino mythology-inspired tarot deck. I'm an illustrator for a zine that teaches algorithms at a middle school level with Paper Oranges (buying a zine helps us distribute the zine to teaching institutions for free!). I am working on a short film animation with a multimedia artist and activist about imagining a de-gentrified future of Sunset Park in Brooklyn. I am also currently working on a site-specific projection installation about queer heartbreak.
