Dr. Daniel Felstead is an experiential designer and educator. He currently holds the position of Course Leader of the MA and BA (Hons) Fashion Media Practice & Criticism courses at the London College of Fashion (UAL). Both these practice-led courses expand the remit of fashion communication by deploying it as a potent tool to critically interrogate, confront, and shape the most pressing political, social and environmental challenges facing us today.
In his own practice, Felstead has produced digital, exhibition and live works for organisations including the British Museum, Google, the Jerwood Foundation, Samsung, Serpentine Galleries, Tate and V&A Museum.
He has taught and presented internationally and contributed numerous essays for publications including Revolver Publishing, Skiro Editore, the Swedish Dance History, and Tate Publishing.
Felstead's PhD, which he carried out at Royal Central School of Speech & Drama (University of London), used the artistic practice of Tino Sehgal to explore issues of uncertainty, contingency and complexity within speculative modes of production.
