Eric Gunther was born in New York in 1978. He studied Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at MIT, where he also worked on his Masters thesis in tactile composition at the MIT Media Lab. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he is co-founder of the art and design firm Sosolimited. For seven years, Eric worked as Art Director at Small Design Firm, where he created high-tech interactive installations for clients around the world. He builds vibrotactile sculptures and thinks about how to create new aesthetic experiences for the body using technology.
Eric is half of the dynamical musical duo gloobic and a frequent artistic collaborator with Jeff Lieberman. He has done sound design for radio and documentary film, and is a prolific musician. He has a compulsive dancing problem-elevators, bathrooms, his sleep, and an occasional music video-and wishes there were better places to go out dancing in Boston. Through his collaboration with choreographer Emily Beattie, he has become deeply interested in dance and human movement.Emaileric at sosolimited dot com
