Ruth West is an artist-scientist and creative technologist bridging big data, visualization, sonification, virtual and augmented reality, 3D fabrication, and social and mobile media with domains such as neuroscience, genomics, astronomy, urban ecology, microbiome, live performance, entertainment, and digital remix culture. She creates works with multiple entry points that can exist concurrently as aesthetic experiences and cultural interventions or serve as the basis for artistically impelled scientific inquiry and tools.
