Dan Goods wants to alter your way of observing and experiencing the world. Goods is a Visual Strategist with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Los Angeles. He conceives new ways of communicating ideas, thoughts, and mission discoveries through a variety of visual mediums. Goods translates the complex and abstract work of NASA JPL scientists into real-world forms, experiences and sounds. Using a multitude of platforms and media, Goods makes new and complex scientific concepts tangible and understandable. Recent projects include eCloud, a data-driven sculpture inspired by the volume and behavior of an idealized cloud that responds to weather from around the world, and Metamorphosis, a glowing, 12-foot-long steel representation of a real comet known as 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Goods has exhibited his installations internationally including the TED Conference (CA), Summit Series (DC), Technorama (Switzerland), World Science Festival (NYC), Nevada Museum of Art (NV), and the Pasadena Museum of California Art (CA).
