John Laux was passionate about technology, art, and nature. He created paper sculptures, crafted Christmas ornaments, shot holographs in a lab he created, and took photos on his trips to Nova Scotia and Montana. He architected websites for UMass and the Media Education Foundation. In 2009, he designed a Green Industry Map for Western Massachusetts as a special project of the Green Gateway, which he founded. His last position was as the AskNature Project Director of Biomimcry 3.8 Institute in Missoula, Montana. In 2004 he wrote about his many interests, “I know that I love to problem solve. Programming, mechanics, processes, solutions, science, and nature. I know that I want to study how things work, how to make them better and how to make them more sustainable. I know that I love to create art and that which brings to the surface form over function. I love things that not only function but that fit into their environment esthetically and mechanically. The term biomimicry comes to mind. Study the world around you and mimic how things work.”
