I’m a artist, creative technologist, and teacher based in New York. I’m currently teaching Makematics at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU. Some of my recent clients include Berg London, Makerbot, and Social Bomb. I’m also the author of Making Things See: 3D vision with Kinect, Processing, Arduino, and MakerBot now available from O’Reilly. I’m interested in the use of special effects as an artistic medium. I’m fascinated by how special effects techniques cross the boundary between images and the physical objects that make them: miniatures, motion capture, 3D animation, animatronics, computer vision, and digital fabrication.

I also have an ongoing academic research project in the history of computing with Jeremiah Axelrod under the banner Computer Science Fictions. The most public expression of that project so far was a talk we gave at the 2009 Pacific Ancient and Modern Languages Association Conference, Free As In Beer: Cybernetic Science Fictions.
