Brian House is a bricoleur whose work has traversed locative media, experimental music, interactive narrative, and social practice. By constructing embodied, participatory systems, he seeks to negotiate between programmed constraints and the serendipity of everyday life. Past work includes a reenactment of Diego Maradona's "Hand of God" goal from the 1986 World Cup, performed at MOCA (LA), a recasting of a Primo Levi novel into a text-messaging robot, commissioned by Rhizome, and Yellow Arrow, a collaborative deep-mapping project featured at MoMA and in Wired, PRAXIS, Metropolis, and The New York Times. Currently, he is a member of the R&D lab at The New York Times Company where he is interested in personal data and sensor networks. Brian studied for degrees in art and technology from Columbia University in New York and Chalmers University in Göteborg, Sweden. His band is called Multitudes.
