He is also the director of <dorkbotperth>_ and has organised conferences including The Media Arts Scoping Study, Re:live: The Third International Conference on Media Art History, The Leonardo Educational Forum @ Re:live, and The First International Conference on Transdisciplinary Imaging at the Intersections of Art Science and Culture. He has also been involved as a program and panel chair for the International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality for the last 5 years. Recently Stadon has initiated the MARart Research Node, to be launched in conjunction with this panel. He is currently completing a PhD in ‘post-biological identity constructs in real time mixed reality data transfer systems art.’ His thesis explores the evolving field of mixed reality data transfer and how this relates to current research regarding post-biological identity. The research aims to develop new notions regarding post-biological identity through innovative real-time data transfer systems that incorporate biological information and mixed reality applications as artistic mediums.
