Catherine Griffiths is an artist, designer, and researcher based between Detroit and London. By creating simulations, film installations, and critical software pieces, her creative research practice attempts to make palpable invisible computational forces that shape power and structure social systems.
Her current research investigates the relationship between the ethics of machine learning, labour relations, and the future of work through the lens of worker activity recognition algorithms. Her work is driven by how the spatial, sensorial, and conceptual can produce new vocabularies in thinking and feeling to make the objects of politics felt.
Her research has been exhibited in ‘Neurones: Simulated Intelligences’ at the Centre Pompidou in Paris and ‘Geidai Games 01’ at Geidei University in Tokyo. Recent publications include the Journal of Digital Culture and Society and Prospectives Journal of the Bartlett School of Architecture. She received her Ph.D in Interdisciplinary Media Arts + Practice from the University of Southern California, her M.Arch in Architectural Design from The Bartlett, University College London, and her B.A. in Fine Art from Camberwell College, University of the Arts London. She currently teaches Architectural Design and Digital Studies at the University of Michigan.
