Sands Fish is an artist and researcher at the MIT Media Lab's Civic Media group. His work falls between activism, computer science, ethnography, and design. Sands is interested in the unconsidered yet consequential assumptions embedded in objects — design for babies, for exorcisms, and for the police. His current work uses speculative design to help communities imagine and advocate for more desirable futures. Previously, he was a data visualization fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet & Society and at MIT's HyperStudio. He also co-organizes Tech Poetics, a new media art community in Boston.
