Phillip situates himself in a recursive dialogue between the grammars of media theory, visual art practices, and the possibility of intervention that can be found in publishing.
His research stems from the traditions of critical theory and cultural studies. Through claims to the right to immaterial property, he investigates political economies of information; the nature and forms of immaterial labor within digital networks; and the conceptual boundaries of the “material” and “immaterial” in critical and social theory. His writings have been published in numerous academic journals and books.
As a practicing photographer, Phillip uses the camera to draw attention to the subconscious of the everyday. In the reflected truth of the subject matter, he seeks to find emancipatory potential in the properties of our collective history. His work has been published, exhibited internationally, written about, and can be found in public and private collections.
Phillip has lived around publishers most of his life. He has worked in new and traditional media settings, navigating contemporary print and online publishing transitions and modalities. In doing so, has managed content development, strategic planning in non-profit settings, and software development teams. He has worked at the intersection of scholarship and business in domains that require prudence, innovation, and a careful reading of contemporary social and economic transitions. Currently, Phillip is the Chief Social Scientist of Common Ground Research Networks (not-for-profit). He has also collaborated on publishing projects, acted as a consultant to research communities, and co-created digital platforms — New Criticials and Immaterial Books.
