A brief history of who I am and what I do

About Me

Betty Quinn is a New York based interaction designer and new media artist. Currently, she is a Product Designer at IBM, designing large-scale complex systems. She earned her MFA in Design and Technology at Parsons School of Design, soon after her undergraduate degrees in Art History and Studio Art at the University of Virginia. While at Parsons, she focused on the intersection of art history and technology.

While her work covers a broad spectrum of digital domains, they center around her passion for blending storytelling, emerging technologies and art to create interactive and emotionally engaging experiences.

She has exhibited her work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, SXSW Interactive, Engadget Expand Wearable Runway Show, NYC Media Lab, The High Focus Institute, the Virginia Film Festival and Parsons School of Design.

In her free time, she enjoys practicing circus performance, discovering new podcasts, and getting lost in museums. You can find her art history Instagram on Art History Fashion.
