Rowe, Anthony


Anthony Rowe has 15 years experience in digital media and interaction design; in practice, research and education.  He is currently a Research Fellow at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design, where he was previously Associate Professor of Interaction Design for 3 ½ years – his responsibilities included strategy and coordination of the taught masters curriculum in Interaction Design, some teaching, and research.

In 1997, Rowe founded Squidsoup, an internationally recognised collaborative digital arts practice. The work of Squidsoup is closely linked to his research, which is practice-led and concerned with the experiential aspects of placing, visualising and interacting with virtual systems in physical 3D space.

Rowe is also curator and co-founder of LUX, a series of seminars/exhibitions exploring the overlaps between light, space, technology and interaction. The events combine talks with exhibited work and covers art, design and architecture; looking at professional practice and how this impacts and informs research. Events have been held in Oslo, Norway (2011, 2013) and Wellington, New Zealand (2011,2012,2103). See www.oslolux.no and www.lux.org.nz for further details.
