Reza Ali is a computational designer, digital fabricator, researcher, and engineer. His work is centered around graphics, robotics, 3D printing, dynamical systems, interfaces, software, web apps, and product design (hardware + software + form). He uses technology (code, form and electronics) to express himself. His projects manifest themselves as either visual art, hardware, 3D prints forms, video, interactive installations, applications and websites. Reza is interested in the ideas and implications of his projects, tools, and way of working. As a researcher, he is passionate about solving complex problems by creating new technologies and open sourcing them to allow others to utilize his work to build the future. Through his projects, Reza explores the feedback cycle that occurs when customs tools are written to accomplish a project / product, and how those tools can enable work to go beyond what the designer had originally envisioned. He hopes to change the world by making a difference in how people use technology, design products and experience media."
