Associate professor Christopher Moore teaches in the Department of Design and Computation Arts at Concordia University. He received his MFA in Communication Design (1999) from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design before joining Simon Fraser University’s School of Interactive Arts and Technology (formerly TechBC) in 1999. From 2004 to 2008, he was an Assistant Professor in the Department of New Media at the University of Lethbridge, holding the title of Acting Chair during his final year. Moore’s multidisciplinary research and teaching interests include vernacular design and popular culture, experimental typography, and the use of humour as a form of social resistance. He has participated in artist residencies throughout North America, and his recent bodies of sculpture and media-based installations have been featured in both solo and group exhibitions across Canada and abroad. Moore’s current 'Speculative Play' project with collaborators Rilla Khaled and Pippin Barr focuses on designing our way out of the present and reimagining future scenarios. With a diverse background and training in the arts, Moore teaches across a wide range of disciplinary areas within the Department’s programs.
