Dave Johnson, Senior Technologist
Dave is a programmer, designer and computer technologist exploring the overlaps of science, technology and the arts. Collaborating on Are We There Yet? was an obvious fit for his skills and interests.
 
For the Are We There Yet? exhibition, Dave created a participant generated content and data aggregation, curation and redistribution technology platform, to support the online, kiosk, mobile, projection and other data visualization needs. He also participated in the sound design effort and created the question flip-board display application for exhibition’s website. http://protodave.com/

Andrew Godbehere is a PhD student in Electrical Engineering at UC Berkeley, concurrently working with the Berkeley Center for New Media to pursue the applications of mathematics and engineering to art in the interest of human service. Employing cutting edge information technologies, Andrew’s work constructs and interrogates interfaces between the body and the material world. Previous work with choreographer and UC Berkeley PhD student, Ashley Ferro-Murray, used wearable sensor networks to suture dance to audio-visual representation, troubling the boundaries between body and technology. Andrew is curently working with computer vision, machine learning, and statistics on an installation for the Contemporary Jewish Museum.
