Marcelo Coelho is a Graduate Student at the Ambient Intelligence Group at the MIT Media Lab, in Cambridge, USA. His work explores how technology can refashion communication by incorporating computation into common substrates, materials and structures. Some of his projects include experimental websites, reactive garments, flying robots and edible circuits.
Marcelo holds a BFA in Computation Arts, with highest honors, from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. Before joining the MIT Media Lab, Marcelo worked as a researcher at XS Labs developing wearable technology and interactive textiles.
His art and computational explorations have been published and showed at the Societe des arts technologiques (2003), VAV Gallery (2004), Digifest (2004), Collision Collective (2007), SIGGRAPH (2003, 2005, 2006, 2007), ISWC (2005), Ubicomp (2007) and CHI (2006, 2008), among others.
