Eric is a PhD student in HCI. He's interested in how people make art with computers, building tools for artists, and how other ways of using a computer can be more like how an artist engages with computation. Formally, his work centers around Creativity Support Tools, Programming Languages/Environments, Philosophy of Technology, Aesthetics, and the Intellectual History of HCI. He has a BS and MS in Computer Science from Stanford. He is trying (and failing) to stop buying used books faster than he can read them. Big fan of projectors, LEDs, and gaffer tape.
