43. Neri Oxman

Presidential Fellow of MIT Media Lab

In the MIT Media Lab's basement workshop sits a machine that can slice human bone instantly using a blast of water mixed with garnet dust. It's Neri Oxman's favorite. "The laser cutter is very feminine, elegant. The water-jet cutter is very masculine. It cuts anything. To be here at 2 a.m. all by myself—it's really exciting!" This laughing, chic young woman in a flowing Helmut Lang jacket is an artist, architect, ecologist, computer scientist, and designer who is not just making new things but also coming up with new ways to make things.
