Scroll down for headshots and bios.

My artworks and installations have been exhibited in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia, and have been viewed by hundreds of thousands visitors online. I have been commissioned by organisations including the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Barbican, Artangel, the Oslo Architecture Triennale, the Istanbul Design Biennial, and been honoured by Ars Electronica, the Japan Media Arts Festival, and the Design Museum, London.

My writing on literature, culture and networks has appeared in magazines and newspapers including Frieze, Wired, Domus, Cabinet, the Atlantic, the New Statesman, and many others, in print and online, and I have written a regular column for the Observer. My formulation of the New Aesthetic research project has spurred debate and creative work across multiple disciplines, and continues to inspire critical and artistic responses.

I lecture regularly on radio, at conferences, universities, and other events, including SXSW, Lift, the Global Art Forum, Re:Publica and TED. I have been a resident at Lighthouse, Brighton, the White Building, London, and SVA and Eyebeam, New York, and an Adjunct Professor on the Interactive Telecommunications Programme at New York University.

My work received an Honorary Mention at the Prix Ars Electronica 2013, an Excellence Award from the Japan Media Arts Festival 2014, and an Honorary Mention from CERN COLLIDE 2016, and been shortlisted for the Future Generation Art Prize 2014. I won the Design Museum Graphics Design of the Year in 2014.

I was named as one of the 1000 Most Influential People in London by the Evening Standard in 2007, and one of the 100 Most Influential People in Europe by WIRED Magazine in 2015.

I hold a Master's Degree in Computer Science and Cognitive Science from University College, London, and wrote my dissertation on creative applications of Artificial Intelligence.
