Greg Niemeyer is a digital artist and teaches in the intersection of new media and society. He teaches "Foundations of American Cyberculture" with Professor Charis Thompson. His creative work focuses on the mediation between humans as individuals and humans as a collective through technological means, and emphasizes playful responses to technology. Organum, his 2003 collaborative art project, explores the human voice through sound, image and technology. The Black Cloud (2008) was funded by the MacArthur Foundation to provide an alternate reality game and a social network for sensing air quality and taking actions to benefit indoor air quality. A branch of the Black Cloud project is the Tomato Quintet (Machine Project, 2007, SJ01, 2010) which connects tomato ripening processes to music, music to people and people to the ripening process.
