I am a designer and researcher working in the area of materials and I am a designer and researcher working in the area of materials and textiles. With the conviction that the materials and artefacts with which we interact in our daily lives play an active role in shaping how we experience and construct our reality, I explore creative manipulation processes to achieve new aesthetic qualities and functionalities for traditional, natural materials, as well as for advanced and responsive ones, conceiving and employing them as base components of soft and flexible material systems. My research interests further include the epistemic role of creative practice, and in particular, the nature and conditions of emergence of accidental and chance events which fruitfully shape the creative process.
