Caitlin Driver

Digital Fabrication Lab Research Specialist

Caitlin Driver is an interdisciplinary artist whose work engages the body in dialogue through interactive objects, devices, installation, and jewelry. The work invites a conscious awareness of the senses through sound as the catalyst for the human body experience. Through interaction and participation one can choose to engage and feel in relation to the unfoldment of time and the opportunities to limit and expand.


Caitlin attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, receiving an MFA in Digital Fabrication and Design, and a BFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing. She has taught art and design classes nationally and internationally and exhibited her work in galleries, museums, and events. Some of her most notable works are METTA: a biofeedback device for meditation, Karuna’s Trumpet Holder: a 3D-printed adaptive prosthetic for trumpet designed under a Google Grant and Fellowship with the e-NABLE community, and a series of artworks entitled iAm: handheld objects and installations that speculate about technologically mediated relationships. Currently, she is developing a body of research in materials and methods for open source digital fabrication and publishing open source information to support global Digital Fabrication research.
