Neri Oxman Assistant Professor of Media Arts and Sciences at the MIT Media Lab where she directs the Mediated Matter research group. Her group explores how digital design and fabrication technologies mediate between matter and environment to radically transform design and construction.
Oxman’s goal is to enhance the relationship between the built and the natural environment by employing design principles inspired by nature and implementing them in the invention of digital design technologies. Her work is part of the MoMA collections and other museums around the world. Oxman was named to the “top 20 most influential architects to shape our future” by Icon (2009) and was selected as one of the “100 most creative people” by Fast Company (2009). media.mit.edu
