Martin Zeilinger is a new media researcher, practitioner and curator currently living and working in London/Great Britain. He is lecturer in Media at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge/Great Britain, and holds a PhD in comparative literature from the University of Toronto, Canada. Martin Zeilinger’s interdisciplinary research focuses broadly on critical theory and political economy of digital media, and often concerns issues of intellectual property and media arts. His work has touched on experimental film and video, improvised electronic music, and the relationship between contemporary art and emerging financial technologies such as the blockchain. Martin’s writing has appeared in journals such as the Computer Music Journal and Culture Unbound, and in books such as The IP Handbook (Sage 2014) and Sampling Media (Oxford UP 2014). He also co-edited Dynamic Fair Dealing (University of Toronto Press 2014). As a practitioner, Martin is interested in creative computing at the intersections of sound and image; in particular, this includes live coding (a form of improvised computer music) and video synthesis. Martin is also co-curator of the Toronto-based Vector Game Art and New Media Festival.
