The Interaction Awards Welcomes Kate Hartman

We’re thrilled to announce that artist, technologist and educator Kate Hartman has joined this year’s Interaction Awards Jury.

Kate’s work spans the fields of physical computing, wearable electronics, and conceptual art, and she is the co-creator of Botanicalls, a system that lets thirsty plants place phone calls for human help, and the Lilypad XBee, a sewable radio transceiver that allows your clothing to communicate. Her perspective will be a great addition to our all star group of Jurors. Kate is replacing the wonderful Matt Cottam, who is expecting his first child right around jury deliberations. We’re sad to see Matt go, but we congratulate him and his wife and we’re pleased to welcome Kate to the group!

Read more about Kate and our whole jury panel.
