Micah Elizabeth Scott

Micah Elizabeth Scott has been doing unconventional things with technology for as long as she can remember, often exploring the boundaries between software and hardware. She's built satellites, robots, virtual machines, graphics drivers, CPU emulators, networking stacks, USB controllers, reverse engineering tools, and pretty much everything in-between. She's an art engineer, chaos demon, technical mystic, and time traveller from the distant present.

Session: Blinky lights for STEAM

Generative light sculpture is a new art medium emerging at the intersection of fields as diverse as electronics fabrication, abstract expressionism, and neuropsychology. Micah talks about her work in using LEDs to bridge the gap between technology and art, and the potential this new medium has as an open-ended educational tool.
