Professor of Design for Digital Cultures, at Portsmouth University, UK, David Garcia is an artist, writer and organiser. In the early 1990s, he coined the term ‘tactical media’ and, as part of an interdisciplinary team, went on to develop the concept through The Next Five Minutes, a series of conferences on electronic communications, art and political culture, which he intiatated in 1993. He has gone on to develop related concepts through a number of essays and exhibitions, helping to establish a new strand of thinking and practice within critical media. Most recently he co-edited Net Congestion: the International Festival of Streaming Media. Much of his work combines media ‘clusters’ including live television, radio and streaming computer networks, to amplify the qualities of face-to-face communication and public debate. He also works in galleries and museums to explore in more subjective ways the ideas generated by the large-scale public events. His work has been shown at the Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam, Netherlands, the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Antwerp, Dokumenta, Kassel, and the ICA in London. At Doors 6, he discussed the far-reaching implications of streaming media, together with Adam Hyde.
