Live Stage: Experiments … with Amit Pitaru [il Holon]

hglp_collage.jpgGarage Geeks present Experiments in Art, Software, Hardware and UX with Amit Pitaru :: August 21, 2009; 8:30 p.m. :: Holon Industrial Zone, Israel.

Like a typical garage geek, Amit splits his nights and days between experimental and commercial work. In this session he will share recent art projects and discuss how they affect his work as software/hardware designer, user experience freak, and (recent) entrepreneur. This is a free event, please bring DRINKS and snacks to share. It might get hot without cold beers at hand, and Amit recommends one for better UX.

Amits recent projects: Sonic Wire Sculptor :: Rhonda 3D drawing tool :: Smashup Dance Project,

Not so recent projects: Bjork Pagan Poetry and more works at http://insertsilence.com

Texts:

PDF on creating games for children with disabilities. A couple of interviews with Amit on networked_music_review and here.

Bio:

As an artist, Amit Pitaru develops novel instruments and methods for making music, animation, and dance. His personal and collaborative work with James Paterson has recently exhibited and performed at the London Design Museum, Paris Pompidou Center, Sundance Film festival and ICC Museum in Tokyo.

As an educator, he teaches (on and off) at New York University’s ITP and Cooper Union’s Arts department.

Amit works as a game designer, prototype maker (hardware/software), and user experience designer to selected clients. He’s also a recent entrepreneur (startup to be revealed soon). Amit was recently commissioned by the MacArthur foundation to publish his research; making everyday software and video games more accessible to children with disabilities. He is also an advisor for the Institute of Play, who are developing a public school that will use game design and game-inspired methods to teach critical 21st Century skills.

GarargeGeeks is an Israeli based not-profit physical and virtual space for innovative and creative people to introduce, network, expose, create, brainstorm, innovate and build. People that take part in the activities come from different disciplines such as electronics, software, mechanical, art, design, music, hacking and gaming. The spirit of GarageGeeks promotes building non-commercial projects that would otherwise may not have come to life.

The home of GarageGeeks is located in the Holon Industrial Zone, Israel. The garage is 100 square meter space that includes heavy and light machinery tools, electronic components, software development environment and raw project materials.
