In the early 1990s Chris Vecchio began creating active devices, installations, and interventions in an effort to better understand the relationship between man and technology. His creations serve as props which precipitate interaction with, and encourage dialog about, technology. He is particularly interested in the emotional history of applied science, the narrative potential of electronic circuitry, and the use of ambiguous but suggestive user interfaces to generate new modes of interaction.
Chris holds BS and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University and has over 20 years of analog, digital, and software design experience. Over the course of the past 10 years his work has been exhibited frequently in both the US and Europe. He is currently on the Board at Nexus, Foundation for Today's Art and works as an independent consultant on medical and industrial ultrasound and interactive exhibition design.
