Wesley Goatley is a Senior Lecturer on MA Interaction Design at London College of Communication.

Wesley is an artist and digital media theorist, whose work examines the politics and aesthetics of data, machine learning, and networked technologies.

His work in installation, sound art, and sculpture is exhibited internationally, including recent shows at Milan Design Week, the Victoria & Albert (V&A) Museum in London, Seoul SFX Festival, and Eyebeam in New York.

He gives regular guest lectures and talks on his practice and research, at events including CTM Festival Berlin, Global Art Forum Singapore, and the European Data Forum in Eindhoven.

His artworks engage with topics such as the ideological and technological critique of the ‘smart city’, embodied and exploratory understandings of air pollution data, challenging the opacity of devices such as the Amazon Echo, and exploring the contemporary faith in machine learning prediction.

Wesley received his PhD from the Sussex Humanities Lab, University of Sussex, for his practice-based thesis which explored critical digital art in the context of the aesthetics and politics of data.

Wesley has a background in experimental music, and has both toured and released albums internationally.

Prior to joining LCC, Wesley both authored and taught BA and MA courses in Computational Audio/Visual Practice, Music Performance & Production, and Sonic Media Theory.
