Greg Borenstein is an artist and researcher in New York. His work explores the use of special effects as an artistic medium. He is fascinated by how special effects techniques cross the boundary between images and the physical objects that make them: miniatures, motion capture, 3D animation, animatronics, and digital fabrication.

Greg is a graduate of the NYU Interactive Telecommunications Program where he is currently a resident researcher. He recently finished writing a book for O'Reilly about the Microsoft Kinect, titled: Making Things See: 3D vision with Kinect, Processing, Arduino, and MakerBot
