Interaction designer Gary Boodhoo makes pictures of minds. 

The Jamaican-born game developer and machine learning enthusiast turns neural networks into immersive experiences. His creative practice uncovers emotional connections with smart objects. "I caught a glimpse of my Self inside the computer and wondered if others would see it too", Boodhoo ventures. He describes his current work as science fiction cave painting owing to its spontaneous creation of ritual imagery. His video installations have appeared at conferences, festivals and parties across the Bay Area.
