Biography

Tobias Revell is an internationally-exhibited artist, designer and Acting Programme Director for Interaction Design and Visual Communication.

Tobias is a practicing critical designer and artist, exhibiting regularly worldwide, most recently at Transmediale in Berlin, The St Etienne Triennial, Z33 in Belgium, Ars Electronica, Science Gallery, Dublin, V2 in Rotterdam and the Venice Architecture Biennale.

He has delivered keynotes and lectures at conferences such as Web Directions, Impakt, Transmediale, IMAL, FutureEverything and Improving Reality. He regularly writes essays and articles for design journals like BRCKET, Dirty Furniture and Amateur Cities. His work spans media from installations and prototypes to films studying relationships between territories and geographies of different structural frameworks, and stories of myth magic and hauntology in our relationship with technology.

Tobias is also co-founder of international research consultancy Strange Telemetry and one half of Haunted Machines.

Tobias has been teaching at LCC since graduating from the Royal College of Art's Design Interactions MA, which he gained after studying his undergraduate degree at LCC. He is currently undertaking a PhD at Goldsmiths.

His teaching focuses on working across design disciplines, particularly with speculative and critical techniques such as diegetics and design fictions to engage students critically in the wider effects and contexts of their work. He also works from a strong technical background being an experienced film maker and interactive artist.
