2013 Schnitzer Prize Winner: Jie Qi

Congratulations to Jie Qi of the Media Lab’s High-Low Tech Group, the first place winner of the Schnitzer Prize! Check out her interactive light painting, “Pu Gong Ying Tu (Dandelion Painting).”

“My research investigates materials and techniques for blending electronics with traditional arts and crafts media to create personally meaningful technology. I’m interested in the questions that arise when we use circuits and programming– i.e. interactivity and logic– to express ourselves. What magical experiences can these techniques and materials enable? What new stories can we tell? And how does this change our aesthetic understanding of modern technology?” -Jie Qi.
