Meredith is a multi-talented artist & maker. She’s worked with Otherlab, Disney Research, and was Artist-in-Residence at Autodesk for the 2014 term. I first encountered Meredith’s work in 2010 at Maker Faire with her North Star Skirt project. She’s equally analog – drawing, painting – and digital, with her 50 Digital Joints poster for CNC enthusiasts going viral.
