Brian House is an artist whose work traverses alternative geographies, sound ecologies, and critical data-driven practices. By constructing embodied, participatory systems, he explores how computational temporalities intersect with the rhythms of everyday life.

Currently, Brian is a fellow at the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University. Previously, he was a member of the R&D Lab at the New York Times where his work was recognized by TIME in their "50 Best Inventions of 2011" issue. Brian has also led technology at the award-winning design studio Local Projects, developed interdisciplinary courses at RISD Digital+Media, Parsons Design & Technology, and at Columbia's Graduate School of Architecture, and he has been an artist-in-residence at Eyebeam Art & Technology Center. In 2015, Brian participated in a National Geographic-funded transect of the Okavango river system in central Africa as a technologist and sound recordist.
