I‘m Fabián Ríos, I graduated as a Media Artist and I got involved in web development from design to coding and crafting elegant user center websites and applications for about 5 years now.
I got involved in the beginnings of the media lab as an assistant when I was in college it was for me the only place in Colombia where I can get to be in a conference from people like Lev Manovich. I ended up developing code, software & multimedia skills in different levels and as a professional I remain interested in the engage of people, companies and public spaces with art & technology so from time to time I take part in hardware and software projects builded using technologies like Arduino, Processing, Open frameworks or Raspberry pi. And more important, my professional work as a web developer & designer it's always actively involved with art projects which are funded with government and private resources and different startups including mine which in my country have become a great industry who is sponsoring huge socio economical changes in different regions.
