Brian House is a media artist whose work traverses alternative geographies, experimental music, and a critical data practice. He is interested in the contingent qualities of information in network culture, particularly in regard to how we understand time, and its material and political implications. By constructing embodied, participatory systems, he seeks to negotiate between algorithms and the rhythms of everyday life.
Currently, Brian teaches in the Digital + Media program at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Previously, he was a member of the New York Times Research and Development Lab, where his work was recognized by TIME in their "50 Best Inventions of 2011" issue. Brian has also led technology at the award-winning design studio Local Projects, developed courses at Parsons and Columbia's Graduate School of Architecture, and was an artist-in-residence at Eyebeam Art & Technology Center.
Brian's work has been exhibited in museums and galleries including MoMA (NYC), MOCA (LA), Rhizome at the New Museum (2008 commission), Los Angeles County Exhibitions, Eyebeam Art & Technology Center, the Beall Center, and Stockholm's Kulturhuset, festivals including ISEA, Conflux, and Megapolis, and venues such as STEIM, Issue Project Room, Monkeytown, and the Stone.
