Jamie Zigelbaum employs light, computation, and industrial design to create sensate, interactive sculptures in order to understand the relationship between information structures and the human organism. Informed by current work in physics, media theory, computer science, and non-anthropocentric philosophy, his digitally-imbued, physical objects explore how the contemporary experience of communication refigures the body and repositions the boundaries of identity.
In 2013, Andrew Blum wrote in the New York Times Magazine that Jamie is part of “A new generation of visionaries [who] are using next-level technologies to create products, projects and experiences that test the limits of design—and our imaginations.” Later that year, his work Pixel debuted and sold at Paddles ON!, the first digital art auction at Phillips, curated by Lindsay Howard. Additional exhibitions include Riflemaker Gallery, Design Miami/, The Corcoran Gallery, Johnson Trading Gallery, Ars Electronica, Saint-Etienne International Design Biennial, and The Creators Project. His work can be found in private collections, including the Frankel Foundation for Art, the Rothschild Collection, the MIT Media Lab, The Tech Museum of Innovation, and at Tumblr.
Jamie Zigelbaum was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1978. He received a BS in Human-Computer Interaction from Tufts University in 2006, a Masters in Media Arts and Sciences from the Tangible Media Group at the MIT Media Lab in 2008, and was the recipient of the 2010 Designer of the Future Award from Design Miami/.
