Alexis Story Crawshaw (b.1986) is a composer, researcher, and educator in the new media arts. Her work explores transdisciplinary, holosensory, and spatiotemporal expression, as well as universal principles of formal design. Key foci include creative computing, transdisciplinary pedagogy, critical making practices, algorithmic poetics, utopia, worldmaking, authorship, and cultural theory (including constructs of value and meaning). With a background in music composition, she has two doctorates: one from the Media Arts and Technology Program at UC Santa Barbara with a Cognitive Science Emphasis, the other from the Ecole Doctorale “Esthétique, Sciences et Technologies des Arts” at the Université Paris 8 Vincennes-Saint-Denis. She is currently a Lecturer at the California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo in Interdisciplinary Studies in Liberal Arts. As an artist, she has worked on a variety of projects in both France and the United States, including site-specific installations for the Fridman Gallery in New York; the Santa Barbara Center for Art, Science, and Technology; and the Maison des Sciences de l’Homme Paris Nord.
