Kristina Anderson & Laura Devendorf

Kristina Andersen designs objects and experiences to explore ideas and notions of the unknown. A central element of her practise is workshop-like experiences that expose everyday desires as drivers for new ideas. They employ familiar, mundane materials – such as candy and cardboard – through which several planes collide: the possible, the unknown, the feared and the desired. The process is aimed at allowing a broad range of knowledge to materialise as interdisciplinary knowledge, which belongs to no one. The outcomes range from requirement engineering, technology prototyping, to the making of work about technology, rather than of technology. She works at Industrial Design at TU Eindhoven as well as maintaining her own practice.

Laura Devendorf designs, develops and studies technologies that destabilize practice in order to prompt creative, thoughtful, and attentive engagements with the everyday. Whether questioning the role of material experience in fabrication or studying playful engagements with body-worn displays, she uses design research to reflect on norms and demonstrate opportunities for the future. She is an assistant professor of Information Science and an ATLAS Institute fellow at the University of Colorado, Boulder where she directs the Unstable Design Lab.
