Teaching and Research
I am a Senior Lecturer at Chelsea College of Arts, part of the University of the Arts London. In 2016-17 I was the Course Leader for the MA Interior and Spatial Design Course. On the BA Interior and Spatial Design course I run a Design Research Studio, DRS05 with Matt Schwab from Allthings, who recently designed the Designs of the Year exhibition for the new Design Museum in London.
I am committed to exploring cross-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary creative practices. I have practiced and taught across fine art and design. I have practiced and taught across a range of design disciplines, including graphic design, interactive media, motion graphics, design for the environment, and interior and spatial design.
I am convinced by a research-led creative practice and promote (calculated) risk-taking as a learning activity through conceptual and material experimentation. I believe design is not only about producing solutions for "clients" but also about challenging and changing thinking to challenge boundaries and develop a critical, context aware design practice.
Virtual Reality Symposia at the Tate Modern 2017
I have a long history of working with Virtual Reality Technology and in response to the re-emergence of the technology I organised a series of Virtual Reality Symposia as part of a series of events at The Tate Modern organised by the Digital Maker Collective, of which I am a member. Information about these events can be found here.
Design Museum Consultancy
Between 2014-6 I was a consultant (Higher Education) for the new Design Museum as it planned its strategy ahead of the move to the new site. The role involved discussions on how to deliver an ambitous educational provision allowing the Design Museum to build on its existing strengths and offer an enriched experience to its visitors to the Kensington site.
