I'm interested in the architecture of responsive media spaces and the critical study of media arts and sciences. At the intermediate scale, my work concerns the phenomenology of performance, phenomenology of differential geometry, and the technologies of performance. At the finest scale, my work is focused on constructing pliant computational matter: topological media. To inform this work, I'm studying issues related to gesture and performance, sensors and active fabrics, temporal patterns, computer-mediated interaction, geometric visualization and writing systems.
