BIO


David is a visual artist, spatial designer and educator based in London. He uses game engines, immersive technologies, 3D-printing and metalwork to create immersive experiences, cinematics, virtual spaces and physical objects for the purpose of eco-storytelling and speculative worldbuilding. The technological singularity theory, speculative fiction and climate change are prevalent topics explored in his work.  His practice, "David Reason Studio", has been in residence at Makerversity in Somerset House since 2022.

Since mid 2022, David has worked as a specialist technician for new media at the London College of Fashion, teaching digital media, immersive technologies and architectural design to both BA and MA courses. From 2017 to 2019, David worked at dMFK Architects during which time he was involved in the development of projects in London and Frankfurt for The Office Group, working across RIBA stages 1, 2, 3 and 4.

David holds a BSc in Architecture from the BHT Berlin as well as a MA in Interior and Spatial Design from the University of the Arts London (Distinction).
