Professor Eric Forman
Eric Forman is a New York-based artist working with interactive sculpture, robotics, and responsive installations. His work crosses boundaries between fine art and design, combining the subversive and the functional.

He has also taught at Pratt, MICA, and the Columbia University School of Architecture. He received his Masters in 2002 from ITP at Tisch School of the Arts (NYU), and his B.A. from Vassar College in 1995 where he developed his own interdisciplinary program called The Philosophical Ramifications of Computer Technology. Eric founded and has directed the new media technology consultancy Klank Studios in 2006, and is the co-founder of BioArt New York, a collective pairing artists and scientists for unusual collaborations. He also likes to ride a bike.
