I am both a designer and a scholar of digital media. As a senior researcher with metaLAB (at) Harvard, a project of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, and an instructor at the Graduate School of Design, I explore experimental models of digital scholarship for the arts and humanities. This site is a collection of fragments from ongoing personal and collaborative projects.
Some of my ongoing engagements at metaLAB include: Data Artifacts, a study of the digital turn in cultures of collecting; and Arbonauts, a collaboration with NuVu Studio and the Arnold Arboretum to enable kids to collect and make sense of environmental data through remote exploration.
This spring, I will be speaking at several institutions about my recent book Co-Designers: Cultures of Computer Simulation in Architecture, which examines emerging design technologies and their implications for the redistribution of roles and responsibilities in practice. Let me know if you would like to hear more about Co-Designers. I’m very excited to get the word out.
