I Just Work Here

A session at beyond tellerrand // Play & MAKE

Monday 9th December, 2013

4:30pm to 5:15pm (CET)

What if your curiosity asked you to construct an 18 foot cone of garlic mashed potatoes? Or spend an entire year drawing nothing but flip-flops? Or electron microscope skin flakes?

I'm fascinated by how little control we have over what we like and find interesting. In my own time I try to follow my curiosity wherever it leads me. When I work for others I try to point the same curiosity at their problems and challenges.

This talk will be a guided tour of my imagination and my work/life approach.
