IBM World's Smallest Computer
The world’s smallest computer is an IBM-designed edge device architecture and computing platform that is smaller than a grain of salt, will cost less than ten cents to manufacture and can monitor, analyze, communicate, and even act on data. It packs several hundred thousand transistors into a footprint barely visible to the human eye and can help verify that a product has been handled properly throughout its long journey.
For a private event with IBM in 2017, AV&C developed a full set of live software showcasing IBM's emerging technologies. My role was contribution to user experience of software design for exhibits and UX-UI design of the tablet interface. Additionally, I converted the manufacturing files provided by IBM's material scientists into 3D assets which were then rendered, animated and used in the event as well.

The Brain Index
The Brain Index is an interactive digital installation in the public lobby of the Jerome L. Greene Science Center at Columbia University. The piece combines art, science, data, storytelling and information design, and invites visitors to consider the brain from new perspectives and to explore the current research of leading neuroscientists working upstairs in the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute.
The purpose of the installation is to engage the public, capture their imagination, encourage wonder and reward curiosity by vividly communicating complex brain science and why it matters. Stories by individual researchers sharing their work in pushing the boundaries of neuroscience are told through broadly accessible interactives that combine narrative text and illustrations, information design, laboratory simulations, and research artifacts. As a part of the team at AV&C, my role was contribution to UX-IX design and software design of this piece.
