Daniel D'Amore is a seventh-year PhD candidate in Film & Visual Studies. Previously, he attended Oberlin College, graduating with High Honors in 2009, followed by a brief parenthesis as a freelance videographer and editor. Much of his research draws on theories and philosophies of media, mediality, and space to interrogate topics such as the effects and legacies of pollution, cybernetics, and the weird in post-modern architecture, experimental and educational film, and visual culture at large. Future work might focus on the Astrodome. Dan comes from Ohio.
