What's New

25 August 2005: Teaching Turing featured on Boing Boing and on We Make Money Not Art.

11-17 April 2005: I Can Feel the Music shown as part of furniture studio Techo's exhibit during the Milan Furniture Fair.

10 April 2005: Demo of Teaching Turing now online.

Work completed during my two years at the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea, where I got a new perspective on technology and its uses. As a programmer and MIT graduate, I'd long enjoyed solving technical problems, but at Interaction-Ivrea I started to consider the human aspects of technology. I hope these projects give a sense of what I did and learned there. Take a look around, and feel free to email me if you have any questions.
