Evan Roth wins Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award

Evan 

Big congrats to Evan Roth, one of our favorite artists is commended with a Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award!

Evan Roth is an interaction designer who visualizes, records, and subverts transient, often unseen moments in public spaces, in popular culture, and on the Internet. His approach takes inspiration from the free software movement and hacker ethos, leading to such notable pieces as Laser Tag, White Glove Tracking, Eyewriter, and a collaboration with Jay-Z on the first open-source rap video. Roth is cofounder of the Graffiti Research Lab and the Web-based, open-source Free Art & Technology Lab. His work is in the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art and has received numerous awards, including the Design Museum London’s Design of the Year. 

In the NY Times:

In street-culture circles, Evan Roth is already a boldface name, with a résumé that includes collaborating with Jay-Z on a music video and creating a computerized analysis of graffiti motion.

He also helped found the Graffiti Research Lab, an artist group that has undertaken projects like tagging the Brooklyn Bridge with an (erasable) laser and tossing projectile LEDs onto city buildings.

Mr. Roth, 34, is being honored this year by the design community as a winner of a Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award.

John C Jay, global executive creative director and partner at Wieden + Kennedy and the jury chairman for the awards, said Mr. Roth was chosen in the interaction design category, in part, because “he blurs the distinctions between technology, design and art.”
