My name is Ed Keller. I'm honored to be joining Mobility Shifts this October to
co-chair the DIYU track with David Theo Goldberg and Sean Dockray.
The theme of the conference resonates strongly with both my current work at
Parsons The New School for Design, where I am working in the Deans' Office to
develop policy, strategy, projects & collaborations around distributed education and
technology- and with previous research, work and teaching positions I've held at
Columbia University's GSAPP, and at SCIArc.
My background is first in music, then in architecture and media, with a deep foundation in
tech- both from a practitioner's perspective [in my office as well as teaching] and from a
theorist's perspective. For many years I have taught a series of seminars around
the theme of 'Drift Cinema', starting with Dziga Vertov, passing through various familiar
architectural, urban and cinematic situationist bus-stops, considering the emergence of
video-blogging, and looking forward to the next paradigm shifts. The techno-political aspects
of citizen-produced content and user-produced education have been a strong theme in my
academic work- Enzensberger's Constituents of a Theory of the Media is one reference in that
For more info, Googling will always turn up some evidence [at least until the 'Friends of Privacy'
group Vernor Vinge imagines becomes reality <grin>]- and relevant material can be found in these
Clips from various events organized/co-organized at Parsons/TNS in the past year:
