About the Artist:
Kevin Hietala a Digital Media student at SJSU, and most of his art has a digital aspect to it. "I like to create work that has a sense of humor to it, and I love to include an interactive element to engage the viewer," he says. "Until early this year my work was purely digital for the most part, with much of it being videos or games made in Flash or Game Maker. For my sculptural work I've done this with the use of Arduino and fairly simple inputs such as photocells and potentiometers. The use of digital tools such as 123D Make and more common tools such as vacuum forming has allowed me to bring my work out of the virtual space despite not having been taught in many traditional assembly processes such as woodworking and ceramics."
