Adam Pruden

As a Research Fellow at MIT’s Senseable City Lab, Adam is the current team leader for Flyfire, a swarm of flying LED pixels, which aims to coordinate in unison transforming any ordinary space into a highly immersive and interactive display environment.

Before joining MIT, Adam graduated from Ball State University in Indiana with a B.A. in Architecture and an acute interest in comprehending the real meaning of an architect in today’s global society. To gain a greater understanding of a connected world and build upon a cross-disciplinary design foundation, Adam moved to New York City to receive his Masters in Communications Design at Pratt Institute.

While diving deeper into new design areas, such as print, typographics, motion, interactive and 3d visualization, architectural principles continued to direct his work, including his graduate thesis “Detached Messages,” which explored extreme forms of floating visual media embedded with responsive and sensing technology.
