Biography

Abhishek was born in New Delhi, India and moved to Atlanta, GA to pursue his BS in Electrical Engineering and MS in Artificial Intelligence at Georgia Institute of Technology. He studied and applied intelligent control and machine learning to create smart robotic systems. His work as an IT technical consultant for 5 years, integrating networks and systems for business use, led him to Silicon Valley where he became an active member of Noisebridge Hackerpsace. Abhishek got involved in the maker movement and worked at a DIY electronics company. He began to explore the space between the intersection of art and technology and started his own studio practice. His practice is rooted in education and he has taught electronics, digital fabrication and computer science at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Abhishek then worked at The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, where he was the lead interactive exhibitions designer and fabricator.

Abhishek’s interest in critical theory and philosophical examination has informed his research-based studio practice. His work manifests in the form of interactive installations, performances and interventions. These serve to explore and reveal hidden forms of subjugation created as a result of our modern networked world. Abhishek is an avid DIYer, electronics junkie and an honorary board member of the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA). He prefers the term ‘Hacker’ to ‘Maker’. His work has been showcased at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, The Boulder Public Library, The Boulder Creative Collective Warehouse, The Hyde Park Art Center, and Sector 2337 Art Gallery & Printing Press. Abhishek has presented at conferences including Tangible Embedded Interaction (TEI), International Symposium of Electronic Arts (ISEA) and Infosys Pathfinders Institute
