Research in Emerging Media Practices investigates critical and playful engagements with a variety of mobile, embedded, networked and pervasive computational media.

From responsive artifacts and wearable media to critical spatial practices and ad-hoc media infrastructure, we explore the latent potentials and hidden agendas of new and emerging media technologies and their social and political implications. Experimentally driven, culturally situated, and spatially contingent, this practice-based research acknowledges that making media today is an expansive and extensible practice that is both broadly interdisciplinary and highly collaborative in nature. As such, our work is not easily categorized and often spans disciplines that traditionally have little overlap.
