The work of Josh Nimoy

Josh Nimoy is a free floating creative technologist, available for contract. He has a BA from UCLA department of Design | Media Arts and a masters degree from NYU Tisch Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP). His past work ranges from traditional print design and illustration to highly experimental concept; Robotic typography, camera-vision experimentation, and irritating network memes. Nimoy's work is playful in nature, and grounded in a working repertoire of digital and physical building. As an artist, Josh indulges in the pleasures of simple aesthetics, but is concerned with the effects of commercialism on the sensation of technological empowerment. He expresses a personal catharsis towards human-computer interaction in general. As a designer, Josh focuses on the psychological ergonomics of repetitive interface, and heightening the designer's awareness of the surrounding world. As a technologist, Josh shines best as a rapid prototyper of software and physical, also specializing in bridging the gap in communication between creative and engineering professionals. Because his technical skills are born from creative or content-driven needs, Nimoy's technical counseling has gained value even in non-creative situations that simply call for a new conceptual approach to technology research. Josh is known to drive conventional programmers crazy with his unorthodox coding methods. He has been a graduate thesis advisor at the School of Visual Arts in New York and aided teaching at UCLA. He has worked with Weiden+Kennedy, Benetton, and Pentagram, as well as countless artistic individuals in LA and New York. Josh has lectured & exhibited work in different countries, and is currently in production on a new series of synaesthetic software art pieces in collaboration with usability scientists via the Foundation of Arts and Creative Technology in Liverpool, England.
