Communicate Emotions
Hi there! My name is Ellie Kexin Lin. I'm a creative technologist and interaction designer based in Brooklyn.

I mainly focus on digital-physical blended design and development. Considering human bodies as their interfaces interacting with the outer world, I converge computing power into the built environment to communicates emotions.

7 Years of Design
I was trained as an architect. I won 3 national scholarship in my undergrad, including one that took me to Milan, Italy as an exchange student, and one sponsored me to travel and do research in eastern Europe and finished the writing of my first book To Every Age Its Art -- Modernization Exploration of Regionalism in Architecture under the Influence of Secession.

I've been actively studying, practicing and contributing to the world of design since 7 years ago, and I will continue my exploration.
Creative Technology
I just graduated from NYU ITP (Interactive Telecommunications Program), where I gained hands-on experience in designing, developing, and building interactive installations and interconnected systems. I've proudly had the opportunities to work closely with industry professionals as well as new media artists over the past two years, helping them from a design, branding, and technology perspective.

@el_touchdesigner on Instagram is where I post my daily development practices done in TouchDesigner, implemented with Blender, Substance Designer, AfterEffects and other programs. You can find shader programming, FBX/PBR experiments, sound visualization, data visualization and much more there.
