Event Description

Kaho Abe is a game designer and media artist based in New York City interested in improving social and personal experiences through the use of technology, fashion and games. She designs games and builds custom controllers with the hope to bring people together in new ways, face to face, in public spaces. Her work is a result of her lifelong interest in technology, her love of social games and her previous career as a fashion designer. Kaho also shares her practice by developing content and teaching Playable Fashion, an afterschool program for highschoolers, originally taught at Eyebeam Art and Technology Center. She also teaches classes about building custom game controllers at the NYU Game Innovation Lab. Kaho will be discussing her practice and what the future may hold for digital games. 

Kaho will be teaching a free workshop on making glove controllers on Wednesday, April 18 from 6-9 p.m. Space is limited. Register here.
