Ari is a Brooklyn-based artist, designer, and creative technologist whose research and practice explore the relationships between various forms of design and sentient experiences. She is a creative technologist at Google Creative Lab, professor at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Graduate Program, and founder of Afrotectopia, a social institution that is imagining, researching, and building at the nexus of new media art, design, science, and technology through a Black and Afrocentric lens. To Sift explores our navigation of constant stimulation, external sources, and forces, and serves as a visual metaphor for the importance of intentional reception for aligning self-cultivation.
