Max is an artist and curator focused on public engagement through interactive media. His projects incorporate audiovisual arts and information technology into architectural practice for growth across design practices. To create diverse access points for cultural and educational programs, he guides the design and renovation of real and virtual media spaces. He has experience building interactive systems, producing live and studio sound/video, and curating performance-based projects.
Max has worked as a media specialist in art and education institutions including the Guggenheim Museum, the United Nations International School, and the Arts, Letters, and Numbers school. As co-founder of Sonic Platforms, a sound-based media collective, he works to implement new applications of sound in public art and design. He holds a BA in Philosophy and an MSc in Critical, Curatorial and Conceptual Practices in Architecture (CCCP) from Columbia University’s GSAPP, where he researched how aural interfaces influence the built environment and public display. Currently, Max works to further develop interactive media at the Storefront for Art and Architecture where he manages the gallery and coordinates projects.
