Revision Path

275: Omayeli Arenyeka

Episode Summary

We're closing out the year here on Revision Path with artist and technologist Omayeli Arenyeka. I first learned about her work when she wrote into Revision Path earlier this year, and then we crossed paths again when I started covering her creative tech projects on Glitch. So in a way, this interview is a bit of a full circle moment! We started off talking about her current engineering work at LinkedIn, and then she shared how she first learned about Glitch and what drew her to the platform. Yeli also gave a talk recently at XOXO about the "creative saviour complex", so she went into the inspiration behind that presentation and discussed who and what fuels her work. I really think she's going to be someone to watch in 2019, so make sure you check out her work and follow her journey!
