William is professor of Comparative Media Studies at MIT (US) and at Utrecht University (Netherlands). Principal investigator of MIT’s Open Documentary Lab, he explores the frontiers of interactive and participatory reality-based storytelling. William works at the frontiers of new media using both a historical lens (old media when they were new), and interactive and algorithmically generated media forms (including work on computer-generated stories). His awards include Guggenheim, Humboldt and Fulbright fellowships and the Berlin Prize.
