Design Facilitation



How does a conceptual arts practice inform the early stages of product development?

My practice as a Design Facilitator has evolved from my career as a fine artist. I have spent the last 6 years facilitating collaborations across design and medical specialisms - most notably through my design consultancy OurOwnsKIN and previous network sKINship. I specialise in brokering interactions between medical, material and apparel sectors during early phases of product development. I am currently researching the potential of materials and making as a language to share ‘bodily experience’ between interdisciplinary groups.
