So you’re a designer/developer/artist/musician/person-of-too-many-skills. This talk celebrates the reality of paving a career between many disciplines. We were the kids who couldn’t decide what we wanted to be when we grew up. We are really bad at answering the simple question “what do you do?” We likely have a few obsessions and too many distractions. We deal with people who don’t believe that we exist. But we’re overall a clever bunch, and as technologies become more about interactions and experiences versus raw functionality, we’re often the secret sauce that makes the next awesome product.
Mary will share her work and experiences from being a designer/technologist/artist working largely with fashion and digital fabrication. She will endeavor to make this talk not just the usual slides with shiny photos, and hopes you might share a fascination for automating manufacturing workflows and computational approaches to bridging digital and physical.
Mary Huang has worn many hats. She has made things that sit in museums, taught at universities, and some years ago started a company called Continuum Fashion that is a design lab or a technology startup, depending on your angle of view.
