Pioneers #1: Tamiko Thiel – Reflections on the Artist’s Way
A pioneer in computing, new media and digital art, Tamiko crossed from using art to develop cutting edge technology over to using cutting edge technology to develop her art, breaking boundaries along the way for women and for technologists.
The new podcast series Pioneers focuses on the digital artists who were the early adopter of art and technology. This episode is hosted and curated by Peter Traynor, Digital Contributor @AgoraDigitalArt
Tamiko Thiel talks here about her career so far as both an artist and as a developer of some of the first super-computers. She reflects on her experiences as a woman in both art and technology, not just in terms of obstacles she encountered but also the support she received. She also considers some of the barriers she encountered as she crossed from one to the other. And she talks about her new projects breaking ground in AI and AR and reflects on her future direction and on women in digital and new media art more generally.
