Orit Halpern - Milieux Institute (CA)

Dr. Orit Halpern is a Strategic Hire in Interactive Design and Theory and an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Concordia University, Montréal. Her work bridges the histories of science, computing, and cybernetics with design and art practice. Her recent book Beautiful Data: A History of Vision and Reason since 1945 (Duke Press 2015) is a genealogy of interactivity and our contemporary obsessions with “big” data and data visualization. She is now working on two projects. The first, titled The Smart Mandate, is a history and theory of “smartness”, environment, and ubiquitous computing and the second, tentatively titled Extreme Ecologies, examines the forms of planetary futures being produced and destroyed through high-technology large scale infrastructural projects.
