MA Design Interactions, 2014
I am a designer interested in the sensual, emotional, and aesthetic potential of emerging technologies in everyday life, and in unusual solutions to large scale problems.
I design social objects, hinting at alternative ways of living in different realities. In the designs I place an emphasis on human-object interactions, as well as materiality, colours and textures; they are often inspired by popular culture aesthetics. Another part of my practice includes public engagement and participatory design, both as a part of the research phase of a project, and as a complementary way to engage an audience in these fictions.
