2014 - present
Professor and Director
Arizona State University (Phoenix USA)
2005 - 2013
Director, Topological Media Lab
Media Arts and Sciences • Fine Arts and Computer Science
Associate Professor • Design and Computation Arts
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.
