Grayson Cooke – that is, me! – is an interdisciplinary scholar and media artist. I write and publish, I teach, and I do live-media performance, and together, these things currently make me a Senior Lecturer at Southern Cross University in Lismore, Australia, and the Course Coordinator for the Bachelor of Media. I am an associate editor for the online peer-reviewed journal Transformations, and I’m also the Associate Editor for New Media for the Somatechnics Journal, published by Edinburgh U.P.
I write on a bunch of topics, mainly on the face and new and live media. Like every other digital media clone over 12 years old I’ve cut my teeth working in the web and graphic design industry, before remembering I was put on this world to think, read, write, teach and make art. Which makes me some kind of academic, I suspect. A PhD from the Humanities Doctoral Programme at Concordia University in Montreal helps in this regard. As does a creative practice in live-media audio-visual performance, which is the thing, THE thing, that for me, lights up the world.
