What motivates you to do what you do?
It is important we ALL engage with big data as it increasingly shapes more areas of our lives. If print and publishing can be employed to do that I want to be involved!
How do you start your mornings?
What does a ‘typical’ work day look like?
I work as a senior lecturer at PCA, so most days I am in lectures talking about fashion marketing and publishing, so when I have a day to work on the Continuous Stationery project it’s very different dealing with artists and scientist-a brilliant contrast!
Who do you lunch with?
Myself… at the computer—really boring but true!
When are you most productive?
What’s one thing you try to do every day?
Some sort of physical exercise, it quietens (some) of the voices in my head!!
What is your talk about?
About artists working scientists to make new connections, generate ideas and form a new community…
What is the best resource for people who want to dive in deeper?
Probably the Instagram (@continuous_stationary)…website and publication coming soon.
What is the biggest challenge in the industry at the moment?
Creating space for people to stop and consider how data is shaping their lives…now.
