Nick Hardeman is a visual artist and programmer born, raised and currently living in Miami, FL. He is a graduate of the MFA Design+Technology at Parsons The New School for Design. Nick’s work blends his love for making physical marks with dynamic, interactive digital landscapes that provoke curiosity and encourage play. Nick’s work ranges from immersive full body installations, physics based music visualizers to algorithmically controlled drawing machines. Nick is constantly looking for playful, unique methods to marry programming output with conventional techniques like water color painting.

He contributes to open source coding toolkits such as OpenFrameworks that are designed to assist artists.

Professionally he is the Minister of Interactive Art at Design I/O, a small studio focused on creating immersive interactive installations.
