I joined the Brooklyn Fashion and Design Accelerator’s TEK-TILES project in Summer 2017 as the team’s ethnographer and wrote this short piece. I also led a bi-weekly conversation on ethics, politics and design, which took on topics including seamful design, sustainability, values in design, speculation and futures. Photo description: Evan Huggins illustrates the integration of fellow teammate Aaron Nesser’s green knit structure (top layer) with the electronic LED grid (bottom layer).
