I don’t even particularly like robots, but I love the way this project visualizes invisible information (concentrations of toxins on a given site) using a technology that has been domesticated from military and industrial use into a child’s toy.Howstuffismade. This assignment, given to her design students, has grown into an excellent source of information on how various products are made, including chemical, material, labor, and political issues involved.

His work ranges across video, anthrolopological documentation, perceptual research, technological research, and more.Michael’s report for the Leonardo Journal, Artslab, is a must-read for anyone interested in artwork that incorporates digital technologies. It includes information about existing and historical centers of support for such work, presenting venues, schools, and more.Michael’s Spring 2004 ITP class, “A Nonlinear History of New Media” produced a nice timeline of new media and related work and blog of their reading and discussion.
