Gabi Levine

Gabriella Levine is an artist and hardware designer interested in the relationship between technology and ecology. She studied Biology and Piano at Cornell University and Oberlin College, then worked doing Cancer Research at Albert Einstein College of Medicine before abandoning the lab for the outdoors to become a wildland fire fighter based in Oregon. She holds a Masters degree from ITP, Tisch School of the Arts, NYU.  She creates sculptural and robotic works that mimic environmental phenomena and animal behavior. Works include Protei Inc (open source sailing drones), Sneel.cc (biomimetic swimming snake robots to sense environmental data), OCP (an open collaboration platform developing marine technologies). She often works out of Floating Point Collective, Brooklyn NY.

Since 2010, Levine has exhibited work internationally including Ars Electronica, MIT, Meta.Morf Electronic Arts Biennial (Norway), Eyebeam, Transnatural (Amsteradm), The Science Gallery (Dublin), and the American Museum of Natural History. She received the 2012 Prix Ars Electronica Hybrid Arts Award, the first Artist in Residence at Instructables, the 2012 Gulfstream Navigator Ocean Exchange Grant, and was a fellow of Unreasonable at Sea, a radical experiment circumnavigating the world by boat.

She teaches at ITP and CIID, and has presented globally at symposia and lectures including the Open Hardware Summit 2011 (NYC), Startup Festival (Bangalore), TEDx Navesink, and Unreasonable at State (US State Department). Her work has been written up in Wired, NYTimes, CNN, Vice, Scientific American and Hyperallergic.
