Design Researcher in Residence
Janos Stone is Design Researcher in Residence at Northeastern University in the Department of Art + Design. His interdisciplinary research combines the arts and 3D technology to develop new, universally accessible, design technologies for everyday life. Stone’s current work is with his DataObjects, or 3D prints that embed information in physical form. His DataObjects project has led to collaboration between five Northeastern University colleges to develop M3DI; a 3D printed, high-security, data-storage and tracking system for product authentication and counterfeit prevention.
Stone’s artistic practice blends digital technology with the formal traditions of sculpture to look at the relationships we have through and with the Internet. He has exhibited his work across the United States and internationally, including the DUMBO Arts Center and Art Basel, Miami. Stone holds a BFA in sculpture and design from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA in sculpture from Boston University. He has given numerous talks and interviews on the subject of emerging design technologies.
