_Ted Davis is an American artist and designer currently based in Basel, Switzerland where he teaches interactive design and pursues research in the field of visual search at the FHNW HGK Institute for Visual Communication. His masters thesis, “Precise Mishandling of the Digital Image Structure,” lead to a fascination in the ways in which digital media functions both on its familiar surface and in the underlying code of which it is composed.

Davis’s recent work questions the ideal and mimetic conditions digital media is asked to encompass and the interrelationship between word and image within digital means.
