Clemens Finkelstein is a doctoral student in the Department of Architecture at Princeton University. His work explores the History/Theory of Architecture at the field’s junction with Media Studies and the History/Philosophy of Science and Technology. In particular, he investigates the media agency of vibration in the early twentieth-century as it pertains to the built environment and the psychophysiological condition of its human dwellers. His articles and reviews have appeared in several edited volumes and journals including ARCH+, trans., San Rocco, and Art Papers. He has worked extensively as an editor and curator—currently serving as a curator-at-large at the A+D Architecture and Design Museum in Los Angeles. He received a B.A. in Art History and Cultural Studies from the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, an M.Des. in the History and Philosophy of Design and Media from Harvard University, scholarships from Fulbright and Harvard University (2015-2017), and Princeton University’s Lowell M. Palmer Fellowship (2018-2019).
