Jamie Allen – Researcher / PI

IXDM’s Senior Researcher Jamie Allen’s interests lie in the ways that creative uses of technology teach us about who we are as individuals, cultures and societies. Born in Canada, Jamie has been involved with the applications and discourses of media and technology as a designer, researcher, artist and teacher for over 20 years. He likes to make things with his head and hands – investigations into the material systems of media, electricity, and information as artwork, design projects and practice-based research. His work has been exhibited internationally, from Eyebeam in NYC, to the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology in Liverpool, to SIGGRAPH Asia in Yokohama, Japan.

Jamie draws on his experience as a concurrent Senior Researcher with the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (CIID), and a former part of the directorial team of Culture Lab, Newcastle University, where he devised community, collaborative and public art and technological practices. He has done research and taught at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, the Pratt Institute of Art and Design, Hanyang University in Seoul, and lectured at Parsons and the Royal College of Art in London. He has worked as an interactive systems designer for IBM, DuPont, ESI Design and the American Museum of Natural History.
