Deborah Turnbull Tillman is a curator specialising in design, technology and new media. Her first curatorial project was Beta_space, an experimental gallery at the Powerhouse Museum focused on the audience’s role in interactive art. This fueled her interest in how technology augments traditional art practice and how the audience is becoming a necessary material for technology based art.  She then joined the curatorial team at the Powerhouse Museum as Assistant Curator – Design & Technology, where she curated exhibitions such as ISEA2013designTECHGood Design and Game Masters.

An editor and author as well as a curator, Deborah has been a casual lecturer in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at UTS and in the Design Lab at the University of Sydney. She began sessional teaching at UNSW Art & Design in 2016.
