Joshua wrestles with how to say what it is that he does but lately he’s been going with “I philosophize about human computer interaction”. He believes that art, design, programming, and electronics are all more or less the same task: understanding what we want technology to do and how technology is changing us. He's the author of Programming Interactivity: A Designer's Guide to Processing, Arduino, and openFrameworks.
For the last 15 years Jen has been creating large, immersive, interactive art pieces for the public. From interactive sound and light sculptures that inspire people into play, to woven fiber video curtains that reflect movement, or giant, robotic, ethereal moths that dance based on human touch.
Micah has been doing unconventional things with technology for as long as she can remember, often exploring the boundaries between software and hardware. She's an art engineer, chaos demon, technical mystic, and time traveller from the distant present.

Sosolimited creates interactive installations, applications, and live performances. These projects incorporate elements of dynamic typography, video manipulation, computer vision, sensor technologies and sound design.
Janet Echelman builds living, breathing sculpture environments that respond to the forces of nature — wind, water and light — and become inviting focal points for civic life. Exploring the potential of unlikely materials, from fishing net to atomized water particles, Echelman combines ancient craft with cutting-edge technology to create her permanent sculpture at the scale of buildings.
Kate is the Director of Design & Computation at Oblong Industries, where she designs and builds interactive experiences for collaborative spaces. Her work at Oblong builds on the company's strong foundation in gestural interface design first seen in the movie Minority Report.
Interactive artist and designer, Joel Gethin Lewis, is fascinated by the play of light in dark spaces, the use of strong contrasts between light and dark and the cityscapes of Bladerunner. In 2008 he co-founded Hellicar&Lewis with Pete Hellicar. The studios work uses art, technology and design to create groundbreaking experiences that take people into the moment to impart lasting memories.
