My name is Diego S. Maranan, and I am an artist, academic, and activist who works in area of human-technology interactions, specifically around movement research, creative practice, sustainable technology, and the conceptual foundations of technology. I am an assistant professor at the University of the Philippines Open University and an affiliate faculty with the Centre for International Studies at the University of the Philippines Diliman. I also coordinate educational partnerships for WeDpro, a non-profit organization that empowers marginalized women and youth in the Philippines. My MA research at the School of Interactive Arts and Technology focused on how technological metaphors influence the creative movement practices of urban dancers. I divide my time between Manila, Philippines and Vancouver, Canada.
