Eva Verhoeven

Eva is an artist, designer, researcher and the Course Leader for the MA Interaction Design Communication at London College of Communication.

Eva is interested in the consequences of technological developments and its relays into society and culture and the question of the role of the designer within it.

She holds a Masters degree in Interactive Media: Critical Theory and Practise from Goldsmiths College and was awarded her PhD in Digital Creative Practice from Wimbledon School of Art/University of Surrey in 2009.

Eva has co-organised a number of events and conferences, for example speculative life-coding events at the Piksel Festival (for free/libre & open audiovisual software, hardware and art) in Bergen, Norway.

She has exhibited and presented her work and research nationally and internationally (Los Angeles, New York, Istanbul, Norway and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London). Together with Luke Pendrell and Ben Branagan, she published Doggerland, a small-scale independent publication of a bastard archaeology of damaged, unwanted and unverifiable artefacts. She was also a co-organiser of London's first Maker Faire at LCC in July 2013 and chaired a panel on the Politics of Making at the V&A.

Eva is currently exploring the scope of post-human centred design and a renewed interest in the materiality of the digital within the context of the anthropocene.
