Profiel

Imar de Vries was born in 1975 in Epse, the Netherlands. He attended primary and secondary school in Nijmegen, where he graduated in 1993. After a brief yet insightful foray into Information and Computing Sciences at the University of Utrecht, he decided to switch to Theatre-, Film- and Television Studies in 1997, also at the University of Utrecht.

He specialised in New Media and Digital Culture, writing his graduation thesis on the communicative affordances of virtual 3D worlds and mobile telephony. After his graduation in 2002 he first went on to become a junior teacher within the same institute he took his graduate courses, and in 2003 he accepted the position of junior teacher/researcher, a full time job that acquired him to dedicate 50% of his time to teaching courses, and the other 50% to writing his dissertation. He obtained his PhD in 2008 with a media archaeological study into communicative desires, which has since been published as Tantalisingly Close at Amsterdam University Press.

Imar is currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Media and Culture Studies at the University of Utrecht, where he studies innovation discourses of wireless technologies, social media, and augmented reality.

Algemene projectbeschrijving 

[urban interfaces] is a platform for a critical investigation of urban interfaces for creative and participatory engagement at the crossing of academic research and cultural practices. Focusing on mobile and situated media, arts, and performances, the platform brings together and initiates critical reflections on, and actual interventions in, these socio-spatial activities and their shaping and staging of urban culture. 


[urban interfaces] is an initiative of the interdisciplinary Department for Media and Culture Studies (MCW) at Utrecht University, and collaborates with an expanding (international) network of academic and cultural partners.
