Evan Raskob

Evan Raskob is an experienced interactive artist, consultant, and educator.  His teaching experience covers 12+ years of teaching and course development in universities and independently organised workshops, and for private industry (72AndSunny, BBH, Barclays, Ogilvy, Samsung).  As a practicing artist and interactive hardware and software consultant, Evan has worked for the past 10+ years on installation, concerts, live performances, and fine art.  Evan was recently a full-time Tutor on the MA Design Products programme at the Royal College of Art in London where he ran the “Mixed Reality Design” Theme exploring VR/AR and sensory design.   Concurrently, Evan has been pursing a part-time PhD in Arts and Computational Technology  “liveness in physical computational art & design” at Goldsmiths University.  In particular, he looks at live computational and procedural sculpting with CNC and 3D printing, augmented by VR/AR and machine learning.   Previously, Evan helped write and run the BA Computer Games Arts programme at UCA; taught MA Experience Design at Kingston;  designed and led the BA Design Products and BA Design & Coding courses at Ravensbourne.; worked with the artist Robert Whitman on a series of multimedia sculptures; and for over a decade internationally performed live sound and visuals as the artist pixelpusher and now BITLIP.
