Jason Crouch is our Research Associate, lending his wide knowledge, creative skills and academic rigour to many of our projects. A multi-disciplined artist for hire, Jason has worked with us for a number of years, on projects such as our research into world wide arts and technology festivals, and our ongoing European work integrating arts practice with technology development and impacts. His research interests include social and cultural impacts of technology, surveillance capitalism, why ‘digital’ is such a problematic category, and the investigation of human connection in a networked world.
Jason was an attendee of the FutureEverything festival for nearly two decades, peppered with occasional production work for the festival team. His PhD research topic was inspired by the critical thinking around technology and society he first experienced at FutureEverything conference events. Discovering there the interrogative power of creating an artistic frame around our experience with technology.
Outside of FutureEverything you will find him in the worlds of technical theatre, sound and video design for performance, and deep in his on-going research around the impact of technology as it intertwines with the everyday.
