Joshua T. Nimoy (aka. @jtnimoy) is a humanist technologist multidisciplinary in Silicon Valley, Northern California. Josh is senior lecturer of Scripting Graphics and New Tools, two graduate level graphic design courses at California College of the Arts (CCA) in San Francisco. Nimoy is co-founder, Senior Creative Director and Chief Technology Officer of Galler.ee, in which he partners with designer, Rebecca Shostak. Josh is a composer of electronic dance music in two bands: The Nimoys and upcoming NIMOY (formerly nimoyShostak (formerly Microtrash)). Josh recently became an Intel Software Innovator.
In past projects, he has communicated between technology engineers and creative arts professionals, notoriously amphibious between the two historically clashing communities. Nimoy thinks a lot about issues of programming for non-programmers. He is best known for his generative computational aesthetics (holograms, mostly) for Disney's TRON:Legacy. Josh's most contagious meme is called BallDroppings, a piece of software art from 2003 whose recent iPhone knockoff was (much to the community's outrage) shown at the Museum of Modern Art. Josh's art has also shown at the Whitney Museum, Getty Digital Experience, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Württembergischer Kunstverein (Stuttgart), Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (FACT in Liverpool, UK), permanently installed at Computerspielemuseum (Berlin), and permanently installed at The Public (West Bromwich, UK, RIP). Josh has been a touted visiting presenter at countless new media festivals and symposiums since 2001. His most visible and accessible work was in film and television, mostly tech commercials produced by programming generative software art.
This site is a public archive of past creative tech experiences - mostly experimental, occasionally ahead, often in jest, and frequently in collaboration with others. Some pieces are for sale as art and/or tools, and some of it is open source.
Josh still does not believe in maintaining his own autobiography on Wikipedia. Shame on those of you who do this.
