Duncan Fairfax lectures on the MA Design Critical Practice, and MRes in Design at Goldsmiths. He is also the PhD research associate on the "Mediatised View" research project that is part of the larger Leverhulme funded Goldsmiths research programme on the "Future of Media." His research interests include the limitations and contraints of the "productivist metaphysics" of design theory and practice, the significance of various strains within contemporary "materialist" philosophy to their possible reconceptualisation, and the question of the "ontogenetic" quality of design in general. He has previously lectured and tutored in the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building and the University of Technology in Sydney, the Architecture Department at the University of Sydney, and the Design Department at the University of Western Sydney.
