Todd Berreth joined NC State in November 2016 as a Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program cluster hire in Visual Narrative. Berreth, assistant professor of art and design in the College of Design, researches open design toolkits and projects that make cutting-edge human-computer interaction research accessible, in order to enable and enrich digital humanities communities and their efforts. He focuses on how emerging technologies, mixed and virtual reality, gaming environments, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other advances can help us see our world in new ways, alter our physical environments, expand our narrative-making capabilities, and upturn the traditional relationship between curators, authors and consumers of information, research and educational content.
Berreth received his Bachelor of Arts in studio art, with a sculpture and media studies concentration, from Carleton College. He received his master’s degree in architecture from the University of Pennsylvania. He has exhibited and presented work locally, nationally and internationally, including at IEEE Visweek, The Museum of Life and Science, the Nasher Museum of Art, and the China Science and Technology Museum, among other venues. Before coming to NC State, Berreth was a designer, research programmer and instructor at Duke University in the Art, Art History and Visual Studies Department, and was a core member of the Visualization Technology Group in the Duke Pratt School of Engineering.
