Scott is a computational designer and interaction designer exploring the digital-physical dialog of craftsmanship today. He works with artists, product designers, and architects to realize projects as diverse as interactive art and sculpture, product design, video, information mapping, and architectural spaces. While all of these use technology, the end goal is always the human experience behind them.
Scott recently returned to the US after living in Copenhagen and researching at the Center for Information Technology and Architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Funded by a Fulbright grant, he studied how computational tools are changing traditional Danish design culture. He is now continuing studies on Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University.
Teaching is a critical piece of Scott’s inquiry into how and why we use computation in design. In 2009, Scott founded Digital Toolbox, with Tam Tran, a web resource to help architects with digital media. He has taught and led workshops at NYU ITP, Columbia GSAPP, CUNY City Tech, Cal Poly SLO, and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
Scott has studied in Denmark, Peru, and California, and received a B. Arch from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. He will receive an MHCI from CMU in August 2018.
