Affect Browser - Christian Nold

Christian Nold

Christian Nold is an artist, designer and educator working to develop new participatory models for communal representation.

This website unifies all the strands of my work, from participatory art projects, critical writing as well as new media and physical computing teaching.

Some of my larger projects like Bijlmer Euro, Sensory Joruneys and Bio Mapping the Brentford Biopsy, the Paris East Emotion Map, the Stockport Emotion Map, the Newham Sensory Deprivation Map, the Silvertown Affect Map, the project Strange Weather, the San Francisco Emotion Map and Greenwich Emotion Map have their own sites.

I am keen to collaborate with individuals, groups and institutions that are interested in social, political and environmental innovation.

It has been an enourmous long time since I last updated this! I have never been a blog person, and felt irritated by the way new media culture pushes us to be constantly visible to the world. Recently though I kept getting email from people wondering what I was up to. So today is my birthday and I have finally given in :) . So a quick update I am excited about what Rob van Kranenburg and I are calling the Internet of People - which will be a book coming out in the next few months. I am also exstatic about trying to build and map alternative currencies. Take a look at the Bijlmer Euro project. In the last year I have also been building a unique mapping software called Sensory Journeys and the Town Toolkits for which I will build a proper site. On Saturday I am off to Helsinki for the Pixeache festival where I am preseting some work but more importantly working on and island toolkit for the next year. More info soon...
