Ted Davis is an American designer and media artist based in Basel, Switzerland. Well versed in textual and visual programming languages for motion, print, and web platforms, Ted’s teaching focuses on image making via programming new and newer media. His approach embraces error and glitch—questioning the ideal and mimetic conditions digital media is asked to encompass. Engaged with our Graphic Design MDes programs in Basel and Chicago, Ted empowers students to take hold of the computer’s ability to design possibilities beyond that of the hand or mouse.
