Amy Chien is an interaction designer and art director, specializing in interaction/user experience design, product design and graphic design.

Amy likes to build things and experiment with different mediums and construction methods. Her recent work focuses on the idea of “transformative” interaction. She is interested in activating the diversity of human activity by changing physical space and objects. She also considers technology as a parallel media to provide her work a sense of intimacy. Amy has worked and directed various design disciplines. She is a natural leader with the ability to unleash the power of a collaborative team.

Amy’s projects have been exhibited at Maker Fair (New York, NY), 2010 Re-New Digital Art Festival (Copenhagen, Denmark), and NIME 2010 (Sydney, Australia).
