Albert Chao addresses the intersection of technology and architecture. With a foundation in physical computing, interaction design and parametric modeling, his work explores the mapping of ephemeral experiences through fabricated objects and speculative design proposals. Albert is a recent graduate of a Media, Architecture and Computing MArch + MFA dual degree program at the University at Buffalo.

I am a passionate cross-domain ninja.

I ideate, mashup, design and create technologies, products and experiences combining the areas of art, new modes of interaction, history, learning for kids, physical computing, accessibility, ubiquity, information and socio-economic goodness.

Want to illustrate a story by displaying data on a map? Don't have a team of whiz kids at your fingertips? One good option has long been IBM's Many Eyes. Their maps, however, stop at the state level. Not especially helpful if you cover local politics!

Shelley Eshkar is a digital artist whose research explores drawing, computer graphics, and human motion. He received his B.F.A. from the Cooper Union in 1993.

One of his primary tools is motion capture, a technology that digitally captures the movement, but not the physical likeness, of human motion. Eshkar creates new digital bodies and spaces to host these motions. The motions are radically recomposed and altered, creating a work of performance that could exist only in virtual form.

Albatross is a prototype mechanism exploring the interplay of data collection and robotics combining a robotic machine with mapping visualization software. Named after Baudelaire's poem encapsulating the central streams of Romantic thought, Albatross is an autonomous structure that roams a space until the end of its life, mapping and scanning the area. It has two limitations; the limitation of the space and the limitation of the radio frequency (RF) that influences the movement of the robot in the physical space and the trace-making in the virtual space.

An Atlas of Radical Cartography makes an important contribution to a growing cultural movement that traverses the boundaries between art, cartography, geography and activism. It pairs writers with artists, architects, designers and collectives to address the role of the map as political agent (rather than neutral document). Ten mapping projects dealing with social and political issues such as migration, incarceration, globalization, housing rights, garbage and energy issues are complemented by 10 critical essays and dialogues responding to each map. The maps themselves are printed as posters, unbound for leisurely perusal. Among the contributors are artists Trevor Paglen, John Emerson, Ashley Hunt and Pedro Lasch and essayists Avery Gordon, Heather Rogers, Alejandro De Acosta and Jenny Price. An Atlas of Radical Cartography also serves as a catalogue to the exhibitionAn Atlas, which has been touring the United States and internationally since July of 2007.
