Amos Golan is a chemist, artist and maker from Israel. He is interested in investigating natural phenomena and material properties in relation to novel aspects of design, engineering and technology. Amos wishes to consider materials and their properties, which are governed by the very basic laws of nature, as a naturally pre-programed media because he believes that this approach may provide elegant solutions to complex problems. Amos is a graduate of the Adi Lautman Interdisciplinary Program For Outstanding Students at Tel Aviv University (TAU) and holds a M.Sc. in Organic Chemistry from TAU. Prior to the Media Lab he conducted some food-related research at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and worked for startup companies in the fields of post harvest technologies and drug delivery.
