Madison Cario, Director, Office of the Arts, Georgia Institute of Technology
Artist, alchemist, guide & interrupter creating in the spaces "in between."
I am interested in the questions, challenges, conversations & opportunities created at intersections. I am inspired by the spaces in between - between people & technology, between art & science, between production & consumption, between us & them, between joy & sorrow, between empathy & apathy. I create safe spaces for worlds to collide. I encourage experimentation & aim to generate a culture that values questions & conversations alongside products & presentations.
