Brian House

Born 1979, Denver, CO, lives and works between Providence and NY.
Brian House is a media artist whose work traverses alternative geographies, experimental music, and a critical data practice. He is interested in the contingent qualities of information in network culture, particularly in regard to how we understand time. By constructing embodied, participatory systems, he seeks to negotiate between algorithms and the rhythms of everyday life.
