Tom Schofield | Research Associate

Tom Schofield

I am an artist, designer and researcher with seven years professional experience working as part of interdisciplinary, creative teams. My practice-based research spreads across creative digital media, archives and collections interface design / visualisation and physical computing and I design, code, build and write about this work in equal measure. My artwork has been exhibited internationally and I publish in media art, design and HCI contexts (see publications below). I also teach in and out of academia focussing particularly on the role of new technologies in culture as it impacts in architecture, art, literature and design.
My PhD thesis (2015) explored the role of technological materiality in developing works of art and design as part of ecologies of experience. I maintain a portfolio website for my practice here.
