Kevin Walker

Coventry University, UK

I am Associate Professor of Immersive Media, also leading a research theme on AI and Algorithmic Cultures at the Centre for Postdigital Cultures. My research draws from natural and computational systems, which I explore through both theory and practice. This includes AI, computational and systems thinking, pervasive technologies, physical computing, temporality and environmental sustainability. These are investigated through programming of software, exhibitions, events and performances, as well as academic and creative writing, drawing on my background combining anthropology, art and technology.

Current projects include: conducting a visual ethnography for Nine Earths; and undertaking technical R&D for Respiratrees.

Before joining Coventry I launched and led the Information Experience Design MA programme at the Royal College of Art in London from 2012-2019, and the Information Environments MRes programme at University of the Arts London in 2011-2012. I was a researcher at London Knowledge Lab from 2004-2010.
