Tyler Freeman is an artist who specializes in designing interfaces that bring the body closer to the machine, thus enhancing the user’s ability to manipulate digital information efficiently and unobtrusively — some people refer to these users as cyborgs, but the phenomenon is so rampant in today’s world that the word cyborg really loses all meaning.

Tyler received his undergrad degree in Computer Science and his Master’s in Digital Art and New Media at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He currently resides in San Francisco, CA. He is an active VJ who has played for numerous bands and acts throughout the United States and Europe, and has invented several performance interfaces such as DrumPants, the VJacket, and WiiJ Video. His various interactive video installations and photographic works have been featured in galleries, museums, magazines and festivals around the world.
