Interview with Chris Sugrue, part 1: Tangible Interfaces

Chris Sugrue is an interaction designer, artist, programer and lecturer. She took part in the team which created one of the most intriguing and awarded wearable technology project in 2010 – The EyeWriter.

It’s a low-cost eye controlled drawing tool for ALS patients (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease), a degenerative neuromuscular disorder that causes paralysis, initially created for cult LA graffiti artist and activist  Tempt1.

Chris spent this spring / summer as artist-in-residence in Ljudmila (Ljubljana, Slovenia), presenting her work also in Kibla (Maribor,) and netclub MaMa in Zagreb (Croatia). Her visit to Zagreb was organized by Center for Synergy of Digital and Visual Arts and Upgrade Zagreb! (both founded by Maja Kalogera).
