Areas of Interest

Technology, Art and Theory; HCI research through art practice


My art and academic works broadly explore emerging creativities through mutual reciprocity between technology, art, and theory. I use art practice and extended ethnography as research methods to reflect on the socio-technological environments around us, as well as to transgress limited assumptions in the broad Human-Computer-Interaction (HCI) and wider scientific and technological domains. My research and art proficiencies are built on integrated and heterogeneous experience in collaborating across different professional spaces including (a) art and design, (b) engineering in both hardware and software, (c) critical HCI as well as science and technology studies (STS) research, and (d) music.
