Name:Colin Clark

Colin is the Associate Director of OCAD University’s Inclusive Design Research Centre, where he has worked as a design researcher for over 20 years. He is co-founder of the Fluid Project, an open source community dedicated to creating new co-design practices, democratic software frameworks, and authoring tools. Colin’s research interests include: community-based, participatory design methods; creative and artistic inclusion; sonification and multimodality; and new programming systems that support design and development by “users.”

As an artist, Colin’s practice explores connections and adjacencies between nature, digital technology, and duration. His videos are often made using homemade signal processing algorithms, which he shares with others as open source software. He is the creator of Flocking, a web-based sound synthesis and data sonification framework, and Aconite, a web video sequencing and compositing toolkit. His software tools are used by an international community of musicians, artists, and researchers.
