Jonathan Boyd (Head of programme Applied Art and Reader in Jewellery) specialises in conceptual and narrative-led works, currently exploring the emergent logics of (an) asemic materialism in the mire of AI. 

Johnny Golding (Professor of Philosophy & Fine Art, Head of the Proto-centre for Radical Matter) re-thinks contemporary storytelling via an emergent analytic of experimental poetics, free jazz and the radical encounters of art, philosophy, and wild science.

Matt Lewis (Senior Tutor, Sound Pathway Lead) is a sound artist and musician focussing on the relationship between sound and the social.

Manu Luksch researches the interdependencies between information technologies, daily life, urban space, social and political structures and the material world through film and process-based artwork.

Mukul Patel’s intermedia practice spans writing, installation and composition; at the RCA he interrogates conceptions of AI through the prisms of mathematics, language and conceptual practice.

Tom Simmons (Programme Head, Digital Direction) specialises in critical sound practice in intercultural and distributed communication, including in relation to communities, knowledge systems and digital storytelling.

Shira Wachsmann, artist and co-founder of Orbital Bloom, works primarily in the field of digital art and moving images, with an emphasis on narrative ecologies—sensuous forms of multi-threaded, non-linear, collective, and digital storytelling. 

John Wild works across performance, sound, text, code, electronics and machine learning to research the futures immanent within digital technology.


This research is funded in part by the Laboratory for Artificial Intelligence in Design (RP2-8) under the InnoHK Research Clusters, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government.
