With education and work experience in the fields of architecture and digital media, Eric Socolofsky has a versatile design sensibility that strongly influences his production as an artist and designer. Following an undergraduate education in architecture at Washington University in St. Louis, Eric practiced architecture in Chicago for three years. His curiosity in digital and interactive media led him to NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program graduate school in New York.
Since receiving his Master’s degree, Eric has experimented with a variety of work, including web, game, and user interface design and programming, interactive and generative screen-based art, and interactive spatial installations. Following a fellowship in Eyebeam's Moving Image department, Eric contributed to the production of a social networking platform called Wallop. He is currently developing educational games with New York City-based GameLab, and teaches at New York University and Pratt University.
