Nell Breyer, an adjunct faculty member inDigital+Media, holds degrees in painting (from Yale) and neuroscience (from Oxford). Her video installations (like Falling Men, above) have been exhibited everywhere from St. Louis to Bangladesh. Dedicated to probing the intersection between movement, digital media and the public domain, she has drawn on both choreography and engineering to understand how we acquire knowledge and participate in media culture.
Now Breyer is poised to expand her role as an educator even further – by moving on to become the new director of Programming and Education for the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate (EMKI).
At the Boston-based institute, founded in honor of the late Senator Ted Kennedy, Breyer will spearhead efforts to use cutting-edge technology to provide visitors with dynamic, personalized experiences designed to bring the legislative process alive.
