Hosted at Media Temple

About the speaker

Josh Nimoy is a new media artist, programmer, designer who forged a bridge between the world of visual arts and the world of programming and engineering. He got his bachelors in Design | Media Arts from UCLA in 2002, and a masters degree in 2004 from the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at NYU’s Tisch School of Arts. He put aside his interactive gallery installations and web pranks in 2006 to create software-art for motion graphics in Los Angeles (TV commercials and music videos), eventually leading up to his involvement in the post-production of Tron:Legacy, creating generative simulations with a small team of motionographers. More recently, Josh has been stoked about his new position at Motorola Mobility as their newest CXD senior staff media and visual designer. Josh reminisces about how things were for interactive artists in the late 90s, before there was Processing/Arduino, and before Flash had a real programming language.
