Imminent Body: artificial intelligence and usability in the textiles of the future

This upcoming Thursday 26 of march I'll have the honour to kick-start the cycle of talks "Local Textiles" at the Design school from the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile. The presentation will have a focus on speculative design and it is an invitation to reflect on the future of textile materials according to the current state of technology and its projections, all based on my MA project for Textile Futures Imminent Body.

The talk is free and you are all cordially invited. If you would like to reserve a place you can do it in this link.

Thanks to the extension department of the school for the space and diffusion.

See you on Thursday at the FADEU

NEWS – Designersblock, Talk at 100%Design and +

I have been a bit busy these last two weeks so I wasn't able to update this website properly, specially in regards to the recent London Design Festival.

In addition to I Saw The Future, the collective show we co-organised with some former classmates from the MA at Designersblock, I was lucky enough to be invited to show at 100%Design. It was a bit of a marathonic week but overall an amazing opportunity to present the project in two very different and challenging contexts.

First Designersblock: we had a blast. It was a fantastic experience and a chance to share our projects with a public mostly linked to design and the creative industries. Thanks to the Designersblock team and all the other exhibitors for making us feel so welcomed and for their interest and respect for our work. We were featured in Inhabitat's selection of best of Designersblock 2014 so hooray!

Now, 100%Design.

The show I was invited to take part in was Graduate Talent of The Future and it was co-curated by 100%Design and Hèloïse Parke, from the prestigious Aram Gallery in London. The group of graduates was very diverse and it did help to create a "hub" of more experimental work along with the Design Futures stand, as part of the International Pavillion at the Earls Court exhibition centre.

As another exciting and very surprising event, I was invited to share the stage with the always interesting Gigi Barker for the talk Design Futures: How Rethinking Materials Will Reshape Product Design organised by Kingston University and the Design Museum.

Again, an excellent experience thanks to the organisation from both 100%Design and the team from Kingston University.

I wrote a report about I Saw The Future for the Chilean webpage specialised in design Catalogodiseno that you can find here (in Spanish).
