Biography

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...
