Assistant Professor of Art + Design
North Carolina State University
Todd Berreth is an Assistant Professor of Art + Design at North Carolina State University, and core member of the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Cluster in Visual Narrative. He pursues research and design work which focuses on developing open design toolkits and projects which make cutting-edge human-computer interaction research more accessible, to enable and enrich humanities, sciences and educational communities and their efforts. He is interested in how emerging technologies, mixed and virtual reality, gaming environments, machine learning, computer vision, and other advances can help us see our world in new ways, alter our physical environments, expand our narrative-making capabilities. This work primarily involves interaction, user interface and user experience design, visual analytics and storytelling, using the breadth of computational media. Berreth recently won a Best Concept / Design award at the China International Tangible Interaction Design and Innovation Exhibition in Beijing, and was a semi-finalist for the 3M Art and Technology Award. He received his master’s degree in architecture from the University of Pennsylvania, and is a registered architect. He has exhibited and presented work locally, nationally and internationally, including at IEEE Visweek, ACM SIGGRAPH, The Museum of Life and Science, the Museum of the Imperial Forum, the Nasher Museum of Art, and the China Science and Technology Museum, among other venues. Berreth has reviewed and/or juried for the ACM Spatial User Interaction Symposium, ACM SIGGRAPH Leonardo Journal (Hybrid Craft issue, Architecture and Pervasive Computing issue), and the ACM SIGGRAPH Conference Art Papers / Art Show.
