Amy came into the KZSC radio station to talk about the current !The Exhibition Art + Astrophysics which features four exhibits illustrating astrophysical phenomena: an interactive Black Hole/Star Bowling Game; a Kepler App for iPad/iPhone; a 3D Zoetrope of Moon-Splat; and an interactive sculpture of Spectral Shifts in the Milky Way. This exhibit will be up on the 3rd floor in the DARC LightLab until the end of October.

We also talked about Amy’s work with recent UCSC Business graduate and the other student founder of OPenLab, Jack O’Neil, creating the prototype of the Nomad Pad. The Nomad Pad is a shelter and protection tool for urban explorers. The prototype is currently being tested by San Francisco. It also is a great example of Amy and Jack’s art philosophies.
Amy is deeply absorbed by the psychological and physical ways our bodies interact with environment. Her primary focus is to create installations and tools that users/viewers’ can enter and experience. Jack explores art for solutions through the business and economoic lens.
