BIO
Rod Dioso is a new media artist and postgraduate researcher in Arts & Computational Technology at Goldsmiths, University of London in the UK and a sessional instructor at the OACD U (Digital Futures) in Canada.

His research involves digital art in the context of the Global South with a focus on the Philippines. His doctoral thesis project, Building the Network, Crashing the System: Open Source Movements, Digital Art and the Global South, maps out the ways in which an open source ethos of collaboration, decentralization and transparency are framing art production in locations of limited resources.

His current art practice incorporates the appropriation of colonial archival images from the Archivo General de Indias (Seville, Spain). With open source software he uses the digital content from the archives to create collages and interactive moving image installations around the theme of the Philippine diaspora.

Rod Dioso has completed an MA in Digital Art (2010) at Camberwell College and is a graduate of OCAD (2000). He has exhibited his work in Toronto, Montréal, Tokyo and London and is a 2007 Ontario Arts Council Grant recipient. His work is also a part of the City of Toronto Art Collection and Virtual Museum of Asian-Canadian Heritage. Rod currently resides in Toronto with his wife, son and daughter.
