Biography

Dr Gavin Sade is a designer in the field of interactive computational media, with a background in music and sonology.  He is currently the Head of Interactive and Visual Design in the Creative Industries Faculty at the Queensland University of Technology. Gavin holds a Bachelor of Music (Sonology) from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, and a PhD in interactive media arts and sustainability. He has been creating interactive media systems and electronic art since 1990 when he began working with electronic music band Vision 4/5 and later with Keith Armstrong and the Transmute Collective.   In 2003 he formed Kuuki, a creative media collective, and has since lead the production of a number of high profile electronic artworks that have been exhibited in international settings, such as the 2011 International Symposium of Electronic Art in Istanbul. Gavin’s practice is guided by an ecological philosophy inspired by vegetarianism and the critical design philosophy of defuturing, and is a mix of electronic art and critical design.
