Dr Rebecca Ross
BiographyI am director of the graphic communication design programme at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London.
My interdisciplinary practice sits between:
- Graphic and communication design
- Media studies
- History of technology
- Creative computing
My particular focuses include:
- Images, media, data and how they interact with change in the built environment
- Addressing, location & outdoor media
- Graphic design as a knowledge practice & alternate forms of academic practice
I am best known for founding 'London is Changing' (digital billboard-based project) and co-founding 'Urban Pamphleteer' (publication in collaboration with University College Urban Lab).
Recent writing includes ‘Making Academic Publishing More Public,’ forthcoming in *Transverse Disciplines* (University of Toronto) and ‘Situating Google’s Alphabet,’ forthcoming in *Articulating Media* (Open Humanities Press).
I am currently working on a manuscript about postcodes and addressing provisionally titled, 'Addressing Addressing: Location, Information, Subjectivity' and developing a new MA at Central Saint Martins titled, 'Communicating Complexity'.
I am originally from New York.
