Designing for Hybrid Spaces

Michael Chad Eby is a multidisciplinary designer, artist, teacher, and researcher with particular interest in high/low technology, design history and theory, and the peculiar relationship between digital and physical: especially the unexpected residue, loss, corruption, and inflorescence that results when moving back and forth between atoms and bits, map and territory, description and thing. Michael Chad Eby works in the areas of physical interactivity, spatial audio, graphic and object design, multimedia, and digital fabrication.

Since fall 2015, Michael Chad Eby has been fortunate to be a part of the faculty of IUPUI’s Herron School of Art and Design as assistant professor in the Visual Communication Design program where he teaches undergraduate courses in the history of Visual Communication Design, Designing for Hybrid Spaces, and Visual Communication Studio, as well as a various graduate courses and seminars. For the three years previously, he worked as research engineer in the Mobile Media Services lab at Kungliga Tekniska högskolan (the Royal Institute of Technology) in Stockholm, Sweden. There he focused with human-machine interactions and new applications for smart lighting and mobile services in home, industry, and retail.

Prior to that, Michael Chad Eby held the position of assistant professor of art and design at Florida State University, where he co-founded formLab, a multidisciplinary digital fabrication research space, and then FAR, the Facility for Arts Research, where he went on to serve as the first creative director.
