Christian Nold is an artist, designer and educator working to develop
new participatory models for communal representation. In 2001 he wrote
the well received book Mobile Vulgus, which examined the history of
the political crowd and which set the tone for his research into
participatory mapping. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art
in 2004, Christian has led a number of large scale participatory
projects and worked with a team on diverse academic research projects.
In particular his Bio Mapping project has received large amounts of
international publicity and been staged in 16 different countries and
over 1500 people have taken part in workshops and exhibitions. These
participatory projects have a strong pedagogical basis and grew out of
Christian's formal university teaching. He is currently based at the
Bartlett, University College London.
