Hi, my name is Kate.

Hi – I’m Kate Hartman, 50% of the duo that will act as your fearless leaders in the adventures of Creation & Computation. I co-taught this course last Fall with Jim Ruxton, although it has changed a great deal since then. I moved to Toronto in 2009 to join the Digital Futures Initiative, have contributed to the development of the undergrad and graduate programs as well as the Wearable Technology Minor, and I kept the seat warm as Interim Director of the graduate program last year before Tom Barker arrived. Needless to say, I’m DFI through and through.

These days I teach mostly physical computing and wearable electronics. I have a strong interest in body-centric technologies and am currently working on a book for O’Reilly Media on the subject. I also direct the Social Body Lab, which is directly adjacent to your workspace and employs a lovely assortment of talented OCAD graduates. In my free time I make pink hats, climb rocks, and daydream about making projects in far flung places like Antarctica.

I’m quite looking forward to the time we’ll be spending together over the next 10 weeks!
