Travis LeRoy Southworth (b. 1979, Honolulu, Hawaii) is a conceptual artist working in Digital Media since the late 1990s. His work extends through Post-Internet and touches on aspects of computerized labor and self-perception in the age of image manipulation and social media. In 2017, Southworth began researching blockchain technology along with machine learning. He contributed to the beta-testing of the SuperRare as well as Playform, an early website allowing artists to use artificial intelligence imagining tools.

Additionally, his work has been part of group exhibitions at the Zurich Kunsthalle, The Museum of Contemporary Digital Art, The Trinity Church Museum, The Drawing Center, The Chicago Cultural Center, and The Bronx Museum of the Arts.
