Phoenix Perry is an experienced developer, accidental public figure and general rebel rabble rouser. She's currently a lecturer at Goldsmiths, University of London where she teaches physical computing and games. She builds emergent play environments that encourage group dynamics while engaging in the subtle art of suggesting games can address larger concerns in society. Her research attempts to extend the human senses through augmenting the perception of emotion. As a card carrying member of the gaming feminist killjoy party, she engages in regular acts of mild civil disobedience. You can find her in hacklabs burning herself on soldering irons or coffee shops caffeinating while punching code in chemically induced fits of brilliance before napping. Additionally, she's the property of a grey Egyptian Mau. All appearances and engagements are by the cat's permission only.
Cindy Gallop did a good job of getting her to spill her guts out here.
You can mail her or find her at codeliberation.org, dozeneyes.com and other places such as github, twittter, linkedin and such all by her name. Is she on instagram? Only privately, but you're lucky she's not still using live journal so you'll find her more on flickr. She might even put up another website at some point...
Until then go watch some movies, read a book or two, a paper, or follow her musings.
