Dr. Wade Marynowsky is an artist, academic and researcher working across digital media, including robotics, immersive and interactive performance and installation, music and video. He is a lecturer in Interaction Design, School of Computer Science, Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, University of Technology Sydney.
His main body of research explores the notion of robotic performance agency by challenging traditional notions of classical spectatorship and performance. Through the use of humour, and a host of unnerving thematics he addresses important issues relevant to our ever increasing computer-controlled society.
