Australia, Visual Design and Interaction
Keith Armstrong specialises in collaborative, hybrid, new media works with an emphasis on performance site-specific electronic arts, networked interactive installations and art-science collaborations. His ongoing research focuses on how scientific and philosophical ecologies can both influence and direct the design and conception of networked, interactive media artworks. Keith’s artworks have been shown both in Australia and overseas and he has been the recipient of numerous grants from the public and private sectors. He was formerly an Australia Council New Media Arts Fellow, a Postdoctoral New Media Fellow at Queensland University of Technology’s (QUT) Creative Industries Faculty and a lead researcher at the ACID Australasian Cooperative Research Centre for Interaction Design. He is currently a Research Fellow (p/t) at QUT and an actively practicing freelance new media artist. In 2006 he collaborated with Charlotte Vincent and Guy Webster to create Shifting Intimacies, an interactive/media artwork.
