Free Lecture Series: Philippa Mothersill, Digital Enabled Creativity
July 22, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:15 pm| Free
Design and technology intersect unconventionally to inspire discovery, innovation, and creativity. Explore this space through four exceptional guest speaker engagements during the summer speaker series at IYRS. Organized in coordination with the new Digital Modeling & Fabrication program at IYRS, the speaker series is free and open to the public.
Philippa Mothersill, July 22, 2017
“Digital Enabled Creativity”
Nascent and contemporary tools, methods, and technologies are being used to spark ideas and solutions in physical objects. Mothersill will discuss how, through her exploration into theoretical and computational devices of design, she creates technology that inspires us all via our inherent understanding of “a language of form.”
About Pip Mothersill
Pip Mothersill is a PhD student in the Object-Based Media group at the MIT Media Lab, where she explores the language of design, particularly how objects can communicate to us through their forms. Drawing from design theory, cognitive science, and computational design, her work develops computational frameworks and new design tools for the creation of expressive objects.
Before the Media Lab, Philippa worked for three years as a product designer for Procter&Gamble, where she led the upstream industrial design of new products by bringing together design research, marketing narrative, and functional technology to create the first aesthetically designed functional prototype in a product’s development cycle. She holds a MEng in Aeronautical Engineering, and a joint MA/MSc degree in Industrial Design Engineering from the Royal College of Art and Imperial College, London.
