INTERACTING INFRASTRUCTURES
December 3rd at 13:00-15:00

Jamie directs the strategy and focus of research and experimentation at the Institute, with the Research team and Labs.ciid.dk.  His interests lie, broadly, in the ways that creative uses of technology teach us about who we are as individuals, cultures and societies.  Jamie draws on his experience as a former part of the directorial team of Culture Lab, Newcastle University, where he worked towards understanding community, collaborative and public technological practices.  He has taught at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, the Pratt Institute of Art and Design, Hanyang University in Seoul, and lectured at Parsons and the Royal College of Art in London. He has worked as an interactive systems designer for IBM, DuPont, ESI Design and the American Museum of Natural History.

Born in Canada, and working primarily between New York, the UK and now Copenhagen, Jamie has been involved with emerging technologies as a designer, researcher, artist and teacher for over 12 years. He likes to make things with his head and hands – investigations into the material systems of media, electricity, and information. His work has been exhibited internationally, from Eyebeam in NYC, to the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology in Liverpool, to SIGGRAPH Asia in Yokohama, Japan.
