Scott Minneman invents, designs, engineers, fabricates, and exhibits novel physical interactive devices in public spaces. After earning architecture and engineering degrees from MIT (MS and BS) and Stanford (PhD), he worked at the think-tank Xerox PARC for 15 years, and co-founded Onomy Labs, Inc. – a make-tank for interactives. He has been commissioned to create interactive projects all over the world, including Mexico City, Singapore, Denver, San Francisco, Nashville, Jersey City, Irving (TX), and more. His public interactive art commissions include St. Petersburg (RU), Cleveland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Hollywood, San Jose, and Goleta, among others.
