    • Walter Langelaar is Programme Director for Media Design in the School of Design Victoria University of Wellington (NZ), as well as an artist and subcultural activist from the Netherlands. His work in media arts and design questions our digitally networked cultures and infrastructure in varying dimensions through sculpture, installation, online performance and critical intervention. Walter’s work is shown in numerous venues across the European and international media arts scene. Walter received several awards for his personal and collaborative projects and held artist in residence and visiting scholar positions. Walter’s research is concerned with the plethora of recording devices employed in the post-Snowden spheres of networked interaction design. The recently launched SAM project (2017) aims to raise awareness as well as pose critical perspectives on AI cloud infrastructure, blockchains and social media mining while contextualising these tools in relation to contemporary Internet culture, political science and e-governance.
