Assistant ProfessorVisual Communication Design
I am a multidisciplinary designer, artist, teacher, and researcher with particular interest in high/low technology, design history and theory, and the peculiar relationship between digital and physical: especially the unexpected residue, loss, corruption, and inflorescence that results when moving back and forth between atoms and bits, map and territory, description and thing. I work in the areas of physical interactivity, spatial audio, graphic and object design, multimedia, and digital fabrication.
Since fall 2015, I have been fortunate to be a part of the faculty of IUPUI’s Herron School of Art and Design as assistant professor in the Visual Communication Design program where I teach undergraduate courses in the history of Visual Communication Design, Designing for Hybrid Spaces, and Visual Communication Studio, as well as a various graduate courses and seminars. For the three years previously, I worked as research engineer in the Mobile Media Services lab at Kungliga Tekniska högskolan (the Royal Institute of Technology) in Stockholm, Sweden. There I focused with human-machine interactions and new applications for smart lighting and mobile services in home, industry, and retail.
Prior to that, I held the position of assistant professor of art and design at Florida State University, where I co-founded formLab, a multidisciplinary digital fabrication research space, and then FAR, the Facility for Arts Research, where I went on to serve as the first creative director.
