James Powderly is a maverick hobbyist dabbling at the fringes of robotics, chemistry, writing, pyrotechnics, graffiti and art. As a Fellow in the Eyebeam R&D OpenLab for the last year James has developed experimental creative technologies and media for the public domain. Prior to coming to Eyebeam, he was an engineer and the Director of Technology Development at Honeybee Robotics, a Manhattan-based NASA contractor. He worked on developing the Mars Exploration Rover's Rock Abrasion Tool and built a wall drilling robot for Diller + Scofidio's retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art. James has been awarded numerous grants, fellowships and awards, including an Award of Distinction in 2006 from Ars Electronica for his work with the Graffiti Research Lab. His work can be found on the surface of Mars and other people's walls throughout the U.S. and Europe. In the Spring, he will begin teaching a class at Parsons Communication Design and Technology program called, "Disruptive Home Economics". I am James Powderly and I approved of this message.
