Andrew Y. Ames is a new media artist/designer that explores and manipulates the interactivity of games.

Recent collaborative works will be featured in the Boston Cyberarts Festival and Festival International Montréal en Arts. Ames holds an MFA in Digital Media from Rhode Island School of Design and a BFA in Electronic Media Arts & Design from the University of Denver.
