Scott Sona SNIBBE
Scott Snibbe's work emphasizes human expression through movement and gesture. His output includes interactive artwork, animated films and commercial and research software. His commercial projects have included tools for interactive 3D animation; motion control and image processing; data visualization; simulation and computational physics for interaction and animation and Computer Vision.
Snibbe has worked at the Brown University Computer Graphics Group as a postgraduate researcher, at the Rhode Island School of Design as an animation instructor, and at Adobe Systems as a Computer Scientist. Currently he is employed as a researcher at Interval Research in Palo Alto, California where his work focuses on Haptics (the field of engaging touch through digital computers), Digital Video and Interactive Graphics.
Snibbe's commercial work has fed and informed his personal artwork and films. Well known among his interactive projects are the Motion Phone, a networked experiment in abstract visual communication; and Boundary Functions, a body-centric visualization of personal space. His animated films focus on nonverbal storytelling through movement and subtle significances. Both his interactive work and animated films have been featured internationally in such venues as SIGGRAPH, Ars Electronica, the Stuttgart, Hiroshima and Ottawa Animation Festivals, the San Francisco and Seattle film festivals.
