I earned my MFA in Graphic Design from Yale University and my BFA in Communication Design from the University of Connecticut. I’ve taught data visualization for NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program and conducted various design and code workshops in the US and Europe. As an artist, I’ve exhibited works in museums and galleries including the Fondation Cartier in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, SFMOMA in San Francisco and I’ve served as an artist in residence at the ZKM Center for Art and Media in Germany. I’m a Young Guns award winner and judged the TED conference’s first annual Ads Worth Spreading competition. I lived in a London for a few years but I’m back in New York now. Here’s a short talk I gave about my work at the Creativity and Technology conference: vimeo.com/stewdio/codeplay
In the past I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with shops like Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Warning Office, ZKM Center for Art and Media, and many more. Currently I’m haunting the halls of Google Creative Lab. Them’s fun chaps, they is.
