Jonathan Tippett graduated from UBC Mechanical Engineering in 1999. He’s since worked in the fields of marine hydraulics, fuel cells and neurovascular implants. In 2007, he co-founded the eatART Foundation, an educational art research laboratory with a 3000sqft R&D space in Vancouver, supporting artists who use engineering to educate the public about clean energy technology. He co-hosted his own Discovery Channel series, co-owns and operates a pottery studio and has developed a personal artistic practice that explores relationships between humans, machines, energy, and physical skills at extreme scales. His first major piece, The Mondo Spider, a 750lb rideable mechanical spider, has been exhibited internationally. His current project is Prosthesis: The Anti-Robot, a 2 story tall, 4-legged high-performance mech. He’s been tinkering with it for the past 4 years – he swears it’ll be complete by 2016. http://www.anti-robot.com/ http://eatart.org/ http://www.interestingvancouver.com/ http://davidswansonmedia.com/
