Andrés Colubri is a researcher and hacker interested in the interface between computer programming, science and art. He originally studied mathematics in his native Argentina, then carried out research in computational biology at the University of Chicago, and later obtained a Masters in Fine Arts from the Design|Media Arts program at the University of California, Los Angeles.
While at Chicago, he contributed to the development of computer models to simulate the dynamics and structure of biomolecules. Andrés currently works at Pardis Sabeti's lab and Fathom Information Design in the visualization of biological and epidemiological data. He also often collaborates with other artists, designers and hackers. These interdisciplinary collaborations result in artworks that explore the use of computer technologies as a medium to bridge digital information, physical spaces, and subjective perception. He is a developer in the open-source Processing project, in charge of implementing and mantaining the graphics and video libraries for the PC, Mac and Android platforms.
