RESEARCH: DESIGN HYBRIDS

Bridging traditional practices with contemporary digital technologies

In my work, I explore the two divergent realms of emerging computational technologies and traditional hand-hewn skills. I wish to develop a new way of thinking about these polarities: the digital machine, as generator of control and efficacy, and the human hand, as preserver of subjective intentions and expressivity. Currently I am a Post-Doc in the Fluid Interfaces Group at the MIT Media Lab. I hold a Ph.D. and a M.S. in Media Arts and Science from the MIT Media Lab, a M.Des. in product design from Bezalel, the Israeli Academy for Art and Design, and a B.Sc. in Communication System Engineering from Ben-Gurion University, Israel. Specializing in digital signal processing, I previously worked as an engineer for companies in the Israeli high-tech industry.
