Kevin Walker

Kevin Walker is a designer, researcher, artist, technologist and journalist working across disciplinary and geographic boundaries. He designs and programmes installations, software, and web sites, mostly for museums, galleries and artists. He also conducts and publishes research on how people use, understand and learn with technologies ranging from mobile devices to sensor networks.

Walker’s artwork bridges the digital and natural, tending toward the minimal and scientific, with motorised installations, computerised drawings and pencil sketches. And he’s a compulsive journalist, constantly interviewing, investigating, recording and writing. Walker hold a BA in Anthropology/Mass Communications, a Masters in Interactive Telecommunications, and PhD in Museums & Technology.

Kevin's time at Spike Island is part of Happenstance, a project that embeds creative technologists in arts organisations. It is funded through ACE, AHRC and NESTA's ‘Digital R&D for Arts and Culture Fund’.
