About

Museum Services- Tying it all together

A Holistic Approach

Connect Interactives develops new technology, consults, and manages projects for museums and other institutions. We have experience and can provide services in every facet of the process from ideation to installation.

Design Consulting:

Connect Interactives owner Andrew Tomasulo is a practicing artist living in NYC. Living and working here means that we are intimately connected to one of the most fertile creative and innovative spaces on the planet. We assist with design, brainstorming and prototyping, often bringing in outside artists and innovators. We want to make sure your design is fresh, cutting edge, and absolutely beautiful, and will work with you to evolve your original concept.

Design/ Fabrication Management:

We can project manage the entire fabrication process, acting on behalf of the designer, fabricator, or as an owners representative.

Technology Design:

We design custom hardware, making sure it is elegant and robust enough to last decades. Some of our past work includes custom pcb design, PLC and industrial automation, video walls, and custom electro-mechanicals. Contact us for anything technically impossible, and for projects that require a high degree of integration between artistic aesthetics and functional application.

  • Chris Vecchio Ph.D

    Consultant

    In the early 1990s Chris Vecchio began creating active devices, installations, and interventions in an effort to better understand the relationship between man and technology. He is particularly interested in the emotional history of applied science, the narrative potential of electronic circuitry, and the use of ambiguous but suggestive user interfaces to generate new modes of interaction.

    Chris holds BS and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University. He teaches Physical Computing in the School of Film and Media Arts at Temple University and works as an engineer specializing in medical ultrasound and interactive design.
