Arlene Tucker is a Taiwanese and American artist and game & service designer born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.


I received my Bachelors of Fine Arts from the Savannah College of Art & Design in Savannah, Georgia, USA in May 2002. After school, my focus in film and painting led me to the Czech Republic where I worked on film productions and art. Also, while in Prague I started writing for and collaborating with Umelec, a Czech art magazine. A new chapter in New York City found myself creating interactive products at the children’s toy company Scribble Mats and Scribble Town.


My immersion in various places and now Finland have given me insight to different cultures and languages, but what I have gained most is an appreciation of the art of non-verbal communication- something I can build and use in my art, teaching and business. In June 2011 I received a Masters degree in Semiotics at Tartu University in Estonia. Whilst a student I attended one semester at Aalto University School of Art and Design (TaiK) in the New Media and Game Design and Production department.

I combine my teaching, art, and semiotics background to create innovative public installations, useful products for people, and to discover new playful ways of communicating. Living in Northern Europe where my senses are constantly making meaning from an orchestra of foreign sounds and contextualizing new signs is a continuation of my dream to travel, discover and build for people.
