Steve Gibson is a Canadian composer, media artist, and theorist. He completed his Ph.D. at SUNY Buffalo, where he studied music composition with Louis Andriessen. He also completed postdoctoral research in media and technology with Arthur Kroker at Concordia University in Montréal. He was formerly Senior Lecturer and Director of the Multimedia Program at Karlstad University in Sweden and now serves as Associate Professor of Digital Media at University of Victoria, Canada. He also has been curator for the Media Art event Interactive Futures at the Victoria Independent Film and Video Festival since 2002. Simultaneously deeply involved with technology and deeply suspicious of it’s effects, Gibson’s musical, multimedia and virtual reality work celebrates both the liberation and paranoia of techno-fetishism.
