My name is Jane Friedhoff. I'm an interdisciplinary creative researcher and an independent game developer, intent on blurring the lines between as many media and genres as I can.
My work focuses on how we can explore and push the affordances of a given medium--new or old, digital or analog--to create new, unusual, and surprising relationships between people.
From 2013 to 2016 I worked at The New York Times R&D Lab. Most recently, I worked at The Office For Creative Research, a hybrid research group that worked at the intersection of technology, culture and education to create tools and experiences that humanized data. I was also a board member of the Death By Audio Arcade Collective, a non-profit that fosters local independent arcade culture.
Right now, I'm a contractor with the Google Creative Lab. I'm also a resident at the New York University Game Innovation Lab.
