Since 2017, at the University of Washington, I have conducted Directed Research Groups with undergraduate and graduate students in design, human centered design and engineering, information science, and art. Overtime, and as a way to connect these directed research groups, I founded Studio Tilt.
Studio Tilt is a design research studio that questions and considers familiar encounters between humans and things.
To tilt is to render unsteady, to deviate from the main trajectory, to change perspective. While a seemingly small act, a tilt disorients enough to offer a new frame of reference and to open new imaginative trajectories.
We use design as a practice for investigating and imagining alternatives to the ways humans currently live with everyday objects and technologies.
