How to become an IDSC Member

An internationally recognized artist who combines computer science research with cultural production, Sheldon Brown has joined the University of Miami Institute for Data Science and Computing (IDSC) as an Affiliate Member. “Dr. Sheldon Brown’s groundbreaking artistic creations demonstrate the visual power of data to illustrate the human condition,” said IDSC Director Dr. Tsinoremas. “It is a privilege to welcome him to the Members program.”

Dr. Brown’s interactive works focus on the relationships between mediated and physical experiences. “The developments of digital technology provide opportunities for artists to radically rethink the notion of mediums as entities that are containers to be filled with the content of their artwork,” he said. Dr. Brown’s art has been exhibited in Shanghai, San Francisco, New York City, Warsaw, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, and other locations. He has been featured at leading edge techno-culture conferences such as Supercomputing, SIGGRAPH, TedX,, and GDC.

A former Professor of Computer Art at the University of California, San Diego, he held the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Endowed Chair of Digital Media and Learning. Dr. Brown  was also the Founding Director, Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination at UCSD, and a Co-Funder, California Institute of Telecommunications and Information Technologies (Calit2).

-Hear Dr. Brown on Agencies of Art and Audience on the DesignLab YouTube channel:  “I’m an artist. I work across a lot of different forms and mediums, but underlying [there’s] always been computation as an agency of creation, and as an agency that establishes this relationship between art and the audience.”
