I hold the James and Mary Wesley Chair in New Media at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where I have been a professor since 1991. I am also a guest professor in Computer Science and Media Technology at Malmö University in Sweden. I work internationally in the design of New Media educational programs and research initiatives for digital media.
In my research, I study the history and current state of our media culture; I also work with Maria Engberg and Blair MacIntyre to create new media experiences (in Augmented and Mixed Reality).
I teach in the GT graduate program in Digital Media and the undergraduate program in Computational Media.
I am frequently invited to lecture in Europe and North America. My two most recent books, both from MIT Press, are:
The Digital Plenitude: The Decline of Elite Culture and the Rise of New Media (2019). There is a digital companion at www.digitalplenitude.net.
Reality Media: Augmented and Virtual Reality (2021)
This book is coauthored with Maria Engberg and Blair MacIntyre. We are currently developing an extensive digital version in web-based XR at realitymedia.digital.
