Micah Elizabeth Scott

Lecture


Micah spent her childhood making the languages and worlds of technology her own, as an alternative to the isolation of suburban life and gender dysphoria. She followed this path to a career in the software industry, then a second career in art. Now she explores the boundaries between technology, society, and creative expression, using her unique perspective to try and help illuminate what makes us human.

Micah’s work focuses on applying new media techniques with a careful eye to the details of how the underlying technologies work. She often creates new technologies for a particular project, and she prefers not just using the technology to tell a story but making the technology itself and our relationship to it part of the story.

Her recent interests include interactive light sculpture, control loops, emergent behavior, unconventional human interfaces, therapeutic art, abstract impressionism, and making art accessible for everyone.
