Isohale is the creative practice of Catherine Griffiths, a media artist and researcher exploring algorithmic aesthetics and critical code in the context of machine learning ethics. She is currently a PhD candidate in the Interdisciplinary Media Arts + Practice division of USC School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles. By creating simulations, interactive experiences, and software applications, her practice-based research attempts to make palpable invisible computational forces that shape power and social dynamics. Drawing on the legacy of generative art, the recent rise in artificial intelligence, and critical theory, she seeks to contribute to an emerging arts knowledge.

She has a BA in Fine Art from the University of the Arts London and an MArch in Architectural Design from The Bartlett, University College London. She previously worked with the art collective Ocean Earth Development Corporation (OEDC) in Berlin, in collaboration with the artist Peter Fend, where she developed systems and land art inspired projects in China, UK, and the Mojave Desert, which was foundational to her development of a critical arts research practice.
