Adigard and Salter have two decades of experience in exploring the convergence culture and technology. The team’s strength lies in cross media, transdisciplinary, international projects for public spaces, museums, festivals and online. Adigard and Salter not only bring with them considerable conceptual, design and technological knowledge but also project coordination and management experience in large scale media installations. The team works with an international network of architectural, engineering, construction, fabrication and programming talent.
Erik Adigard is, with Patricia McShane a founder of the design studio M.A.D., which is positioned at the intersection of graphic design and multimedia arts. Adigard's body of work includes numerous visual essays for Wired magazine, experimental websites such as LiveWired and Madscroll, the book "Architecture Must Burn" co-authored with Aaron Betsky, the short documentary "Webdreamer", branding campaigns for IBM and many exhibit commissions. More recently Adigard conceived a 500-piece exhibit for Experimentadesign, the Lisbon Biennale and he worked on The4thScreen festival, an event that focused on the culture of mobile media. Other art projects include commissions from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Saint-Etienne International Design Biennale, the Villette Numérique Biennale in Paris and Muffathalle in Munich. Adigard's creations have been shown in national museums, international biennales, international film festivals and in publications world-wide. Among his many awards, he received the Chrysler Award for Innovation in Design. Adigard has taught design classes at CCA in San Francisco and at IADE in Lisbon, and he has lectured at conferences in the US and in Europe.
