Daniel Newman is a designer, associate architect, and educator. His career, artwork, and critical research sit firmly at those places where architecture and media intersect in formal ways, responding to issues of spatial and personal identity that arise from dwelling within a mediated city. His practice is located in Philadelphia, focusing on exhibition interiors, interactive spaces, and responsive surfaces.
Daniel is adjunct faculty at Drexel University’s Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design and Temple University’s Tyler School of Art, teaching courses on archival infrastructures, architectural representation, network culture, and information visualization.
Currently, Daniel’s research focuses on spaces and networks designed for the transmission, creation, consumption, and storage of media. This includes issues of public comprehension surrounding telecommunication infrastructures, how space and identity are altered by observational technology, and the role of the network in reshaping the representational geographies of our cities and civics.
Recently, Daniel has exhibited work at the ESC Atelier in Rome, the Flux Factory in NYC, the Esther Klein Gallery at the University City Science Center in Philadelphia, and the Little Berlin Cooperative Exhibition Space.
