Brian House is an artist who investigates the interdependent rhythms of the body, technology, and the environment. His background in both computer science and sound informs his research-based practice—recent interests include extractive industries and urban rats.

House has exhibited at MoMA, MOCA (Los Angeles), Ars Electronica, Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center, Beall Center, and ZKM among others. The New York Times Magazine, WIRED, Neural, Creative Applications, and TIME’s annual “Best Inventions” issue have featured his work, and his academic writing has been published by Leonardo, the Contemporary Music Review, and the Journal of Sonic Studies.

Currently, House is Assistant Professor of Art and Head of Digital Media at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon. In the past he has been a scholar at Columbia University’s Center for Spatial Research, an artist-in-residence at Eyebeam and at the Rocky Mountain Biological Lab, a creative technologist at the R&D Lab at the New York Times, and a sound recordist for National Geographic’s Okavango Wilderness Project. He holds a PhD in Computer Music and Multimedia from Brown University.
