Golan Levin (@golan) is interested in the intersections of machine code and visual culture. At CMU, Levin is currently Associate Professor of Electronic Art and Director of the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, as well as founder and director of the Art && Code symposia.

Levin has spent half his life as an artist embedded within technological research environments, in places like the MIT Media Laboratory, the Ars Electronica Futurelab, and the former Interval Research Corporation in Palo Alto. As an educator, Levin’s pedagogy is concerned with reclaiming computation as a medium of personal expression. He teaches “studio art courses in computer science,” on themes like interactive art, generative form, digital fabrication, information visualization, and audiovisual performance.
