About

Currently I teach across the BA and MA Design courses at Goldsmiths.

I completed my PhD in 2020, titled: Designing Unlikely Futures? A/symmetry & A-firmative Speculation in the European Borderscape. Link to PDF of thesis [44mb].

I am a component in the collective Design Unlikely Futures: http://duf.space/

I aim to design through making — to think through materials and their processes by experimenting, modelling and prototyping. I tend towards the title of ‘trans-disciplinary designer’ (for now), and have used design for a wide range of projects and outcomes, for lots of different people, as my CV shows. A semi-up-to-date research profile can be found here.

I design and run workshops both at Goldsmiths and in other institutions.

Previously I have worked closely with Kin Design collaborating with them on a number of projects.

I also collect instances of design for the end of the world, RAL7016 grey buildings, and helium balloons in the wild.
