Zack Simpson, Software Engineer, Artist, and Molecular Biology Researcher
Mine-Control, Austin, Texas
Simpson believes that art can be both playful and thought-provoking. Using unique technologies incorporating the entire body, a broad knowledge of science and a long history of game development, his company Mine-Control turns viewers into participants and teaches them something along the way. He is also a fellow at the Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology at University of Texas-Austin. In Fast Forward guests can experiment with Simpson's Mariposa, a wall projection interactive where they can see butterflies land on their shadows.
