In this informal presentation, Emil Polyak will share his barrier-breaking work synthesizing art and technology. Please bring your questions to the event!
Emil Polyak is professor of art and design at NC State. Using the knowledge he gained through degrees in both art and telecommunications engineering, he creates experiences that break disciplinary boundaries by focusing on play, interactivity and making. Emil will present several of his projects, including virtual puppets exhibited at SIGGRAPH, and his current work in virtual reality.
As always with our meetups, this is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to think about the relationship between UX, technology, and art. Mostly though, we'll get to know one another, and have some fun.
