> Snibbe Interactive – Social Interactive Art
> Michael Ang
> Snibbe Interactive creates interactive art that produces powerful
> emotional responses and creates engaging social spaces. When people
> immerse themselves in our art, they forget their everyday concerns
> to communicate, learn, and play together. We are developing a new
> medium — as engaging as a movie — through which we promote an
> understanding of the world as interdependent and mutually created.
> We believe interdependence and a communal spirit deserve to be
> promoted in today’s increasingly fragmented and fast-paced culture.
> By highlighting these fundamental social values, our installations
> remain fresh and interesting over the course of many years.
> This talk will highlight some of the studio’s projects, philosophy
> and working technique. Snibbe Interactive is an example of a
> company working at the intersection of interactive installation,
> computer vision and public social art. We are currently seeking
> interns in engineering and media production for the spring and
> summer at our San Francisco studio. Please
