Emerging Interfaces Award: Shawn Everette

Shawn Everette, 2012 Emerging Interfaces Award recipient:

Everette’s current body of work is directed towards our relationships with objects, how we interact with them and how they come to define our personalities. As a part of this, he has adapted traditional laboratory glass blowing techniques to create interactive objects resembling classic regalia of science fiction lore. Using a high voltage, high frequency current, Everette has devised these neon-filled instruments to illuminate when in contact with human skin.
