Professor Neal White is Director of Emerge, the Experimental Media Research Group. He is based in the Media Production Department, where he draws on his knowledge of art and design in relation to new technologies. He is currently acting as REF leader in the Faculty (UoA34: Art and Design) having submitted research returns in 2008 and including one of two Impact Case Studies to REF2014.
His research and work as an artist overlap, as it is driven by a long standing concern with the impact of art and artists on society. Having cofounded the BAFTA award winning London based Art and Technology group; Soda (1997-2002) his interest in creative computing and critical media art led him into teaching and then research. In 2004 with increased interested in interdisciplinary, collaborative and social forms of practice, he founded the Office of Experiments (2004), an International network of artists, academics, architects, etc. based in London that have since developed research and projects with support from both inside and outside the University... In 2007 (-09), he became a Director of O+I (formerly Artist Placement Group), whose legacy alongside British artist John Latham, continue to influence his practice.
With an International career that includes recent exhibitions and projects in Europe, UK and USA; Washington DCAAH (Washington 2012), Portikus (Frankfurt - 2014) and The Whitechapel Gallery (London - 2014-15), his work across academia and social contexts underlines the critical role of artists in leading the interrogation of subjects ranging from archives to the military industrial complex.
He has supervised students to completion in areas relating to media practice and currently supervises funded PhDs and staff, with specific input into practice research. Approaches from prospective students interested in undertaking critical and socially engaged forms of research practice in areas of art, design and media are welcomed.more
