ABOUT (Tom Keene cv)
Tom Keene is a media artist and researcher who investigates the role of marginal and often obscure technological objects that construct, transform and amplify the social relations of everyday life. These objects have consisted of municipal databases, systems of administration, wireless protocol, algorithms, individual electrical components, mobile devices, cloud servers, automated vacuum cleaners and biological sensors. Through these objects, Tom researches technological histories, builds contraptions and performs live experiments. His practice-based approach probes a more than human technological agency that mediates, coerces and constructs our social relations.

Tom is currently collaborating with YoHa. A researcher with www.citizensense.net, a European Research Council Project led by Jennifer Gabrys. An outreach artist at pioneering media art gallery Furtherfield. A founding member of artist collective OSA, a freelance programmer and a core contributor to Avant, a new Journal launched at Transmediale, Berlin, 2014. He graduated from the MA Interactive Media: Critical Theory and Practice at Goldsmiths College in 2012 (Convened by Luciana Parisi and Graham Harwood). His work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally in the form of finished pieces, contraptions and experimental workshops at the Victoria & Albert Museum (London 2013), Transmediale (Berlin 2013), Furtherfield (London 2013), Chelsea College of Art (London 2013), ISEA (Instanbul 2011), Dublin Science Gallery (Dublin 2010), Watermans Gallery (London 2010), and Tate Modern (London 2009).
