Profile

Bio

My practice and research focuses on a discipline-agnostic approach to designing and making that recognizes the boundaries of the problem being addressed, not the artificial boundaries of traditionally-defined disciplinary practice. In 1998, I co-founded rootoftwo - a hybrid art and design studio that makes experimental objects and spaces that seek to challenge perceptions, expectations and established behavior. My current scholarly research seeks a better understanding of what makes cross-disciplinary collaborations successful. I have presented and published my research in Brazil, China, Denmark, Japan, Macedonia, the Netherlands, UK and US.

    My theory of the “coincidental bump for all three of us at the end of 2007” - the publication of “Making Things Talk: Practical Methods for Connecting Physical Objects” by Tom Igoe on September 28, 2007. Just a theory.
