Daniel Rourke [UK]

Daniel Rourke is a British born writer/artist currently based between London and Berlin. In his work, Rourke creates collaborative frameworks and theoretical toolsets for exploring the intersection of digital materiality, the arts, and posthumanism. These frameworks often hinge on speculative elements taken from science fiction and pop culture: fictional figures and fabulations that might offer a glimpse of a radical ‘outside’ to the human(ities). His writing, lecturing, and artistic profile is extensive, including work with FACT (Liverpool, 2017), Centre Pompidou (Paris, 2017), Transmediale (Berlin, 2016 and 2017), Tate Modern (London, 2016), Sonic Acts (Amsterdam, 2016 and 2017), Carnegie Mellon’s STUDIO for Creative Inquiry (Pittsburgh, 2015), DarAlHokoomeh Project (Iran, 2014), Carroll/Fletcher Gallery (London, 2014), The Wellcome Trust (London, 2013), AND Festival (Manchester, 2012), GLI.TC/H Fest (Chicago, 2012), as well as HOLO Magazine, Media-N, Alluvium, and AfterImage Journals. Rourke is also a regular contributor to Rhizome.org and Furtherfield.org.
