My work deploys traditional craft techniques and modern networked technologies - allowing me to develop tools and techniques that re-use, re-purpose and re-cycle waste material. The systems I develop rely on open source information – whether ancient weaving techniques or freely available designs for digitally controlled spinning machines.
My research is published and freely available to any one who wants to contribute, hack or develop my work. I hope that this contributes to an ecology where modern life becomes more in tune with the ecosystems that sustain it. Integral to my practice is the engagement of people in the process of making. Learning design and prototyping skills gives individuals the tools and know how to build relationships to our environments and encourage us to be makers and innovators rather than consumers.
