Ma-to-ken is a device that uses physical tokens to help us better monitor food in the home. Each year, 4.4 million tonnes of food is thrown out from UK homes. Whilst we never buy food intending for it to go to waste, most of us recognise that we are guilty of letting it happen. It indicates when food is going bad and guides us towards using up ageing ingredients before they expire. Ma-to-ken alerts us to when food is going bad and guides us towards using up ageing ingredients before they go bad.

With experience in working as both a designer and an engineer, my practice looks at the relationship between humans and technology. My work investigates how playful interactions with technology can capture our imagination and, in turn, change how we interact with the world around us.
