Golan Levin is Associate Professor of Electronic Art at Carnegie Mellon University, where he also holds courtesy appointments in Computer Science, Design, and Entertainment Technology. Since 2009 he has also served as Director of the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, a laboratory within CMU dedicated to supporting atypical, interdisciplinary and inter-institutional research projects at the intersection of arts, sciences and technology. Golan has spent half his life as an artist embedded within technological research environments, in places like the MIT Media Laboratory, the Ars Electronica Futurelab, and the former Interval Research Corporation in Palo Alto. As an educator, Golan's pedagogy is concerned with reclaiming computation as a medium of personal expression. He teaches “studio arts courses in computer science,” on themes like interactive art, generative form, digital fabrication, information visualization, tangible media and audiovisual performance systems.
