David Fodel is an artist, educator, curator and writer whose recent work concerns itself with reading and writing traces of systems and processes, technological and otherwise, that are overlooked, invisible, and mute in an attempt to animate and
actualize those potential languages. His eclectic installations, live performances, award-winning sound design and videos
have been exhibited, screened, and performed internationally including TiMaDi, London, England; Post-Screen Festival, Lisbon, Portugal; Festival ECUA-UIO, Quito, Ecuador; Future Places Festival, Porto, Portugal; Transmediale, Berlin, Germany, and the International Symposium on Electronic Art.
His work has been written about in Wired Magazine, and published by the Experimental Television Center, New Media
Caucus, Post-Screen Festival, and Sekans Cinema Journal.
Recent residencies include the National Center for Contemporary Art in Moscow, STEIM in Amsterdam, and the Experimental Television Center in New York.
He teaches Live Media, Creative Computation, and Electronic Art at the University of Colorado, Denver. Since 2012, Fodel has co-curated the MediaLive Festival, featuring live audiovisual performances, talks and workshops from international artists. MediaLive is produced by the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and ATLAS, at the University of
Colorado, Boulder. In 2014 he co-curated “The Emperor’s New Aesthetic”, a group show of New Media artists including Jeremy Bailey (Toronto), Sophia Brueckner (Ann Arbor), Olia Lialina (Moscow), Jon Satrom (Chicago), Philip Stearns (New York), Alexei Shulgin (London), and Brian Kane (Cambridge).
