faculty profile

Michael Shiloh
Visiting Faculty
Design and Technology

Michael Shiloh has been messing with electronics and contraptions since he was very young. After an earlier career in electrical engineering, he discovered the world of machine art and a talent for teaching electronics and contraption building, the foundations of this rapidly developing area. 

Michael’s art falls into two broad categories: machines that move in unusual and unexpected manners, and the physical expression of large amounts of data.

Michael collaborates with other electronic, mechanical, and industrial artists, primarily Survival Research Laboratories. Apart from the San Francisco Art Institute, Michael also teaches at San Francisco State University, the California College of the Arts, and the Art Institute of California.
