Each hour we are featuring a woman we admire who is currently doing amazing work right in the tech/maker/art/science space. Woman of the hour, Bethany Shorb.
Holding an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, New York area native Bethany Shorb has dabbled and excelled in disciplines ranging from sculpture, to fashion and graphic design, to photography, to multimedia and music. She has performed around the country as Toybreaker and as half of DethLab. As founder of Cyberoptix, she has designed a vast catalog of innovative couture, including the costumes for Skinny Puppy’s 2004 world tour. Some of the more complex, custom made ties are made with deconstructed vintage, recycled or other environmentally sustainable materials. Her work has been featured in various design blogs and print publications such as The New York Times Style Magazine, Details, Fiberarts, Bust, BPM, Adorn, and Industrial Nation.
