Samuel Thulin is an artist and researcher interested in the specificities of spaces and places, and in the movements and resonances of bodies, data, and sounds. Through his artworks and publications he has explored: locative media and contested senses of place; confluences of cartography and auditory culture; self-tracking, chronic illness, and datafication; and creative and emergent research methodologies. His solo and collaborative projects include: multichannel sound installations; compositions made from data sonification; interactive geolocated soundscapes and narratives for mobile apps; music made from found-sounds and field-recordings; live audio performances; place-based soundtracks for public transit; and kinaesthetic and vibrational multisensory installations. Originally from Nortondale, New Brunswick and currently based in Tiohtià:ke/Montréal, he holds a PhD in Communication Studies from Concordia University.
At Carleton University, Sam teaches in the Communication and Media Studies program and in the Music program.
