Ivica Ico Bukvic

I explore connections among the science, engineering, arts, and design, with particular focus on creative enabling technologies. Most recently, my interest is in developing new creative tools that promote access, with particular focus on big data immersion, large-scale digital signal processing and spatialization, K-12 education and community engagement, and the integration of arts, quantified self, and multisensory feedback as a catalyst for mind & body health.

I believe in transdisciplinarity, integrative and holistic approach to creativity and collaboration, and a better future through culture and technology.

I received doctorate from the University of Cincinnati (2005) in computer music and am currently working at Virginia Tech as the inaugural director of the Creativity + Innovation (C+I) transdisciplinary initiative and the co-director of the Human Centered Design (HCD) individualized interdisciplinary PhD program, a professor in Creative Technologies in Music, the founder and director of the Digital Interactive Sound and Intermedia Studio (DISIS) and World’s first Linux-based Laptop Orchestra (L2Ork), Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT) Senior Fellow, and a member of the Center for Human-Computer Interaction (CHCI) with a courtesy appointment in the department of Computer Science.
