I work at the intersection of design, strategy and research—by crossing boundaries between speculation and realities(s/r), research and practice(r/p), digital and analog(d/a), but most importantly between disciplines.

Open Bridge




Open Bridge—


This project is about changing our behaviour towards the lifecycle of consumer products. There are many items that aren’t used any more or even thrown away. Offering them to the community does not only mean helping people in need, but also keeping our relationships towards resources and our environment in mind.
        In co-creation with dumpster divers of “The Binners’ Project” we created and tested prototypes. We recognized that their actions are meaningful work for our society, which we tried to make more human and accessible.
︎︎︎︎︎ Open Bridge won the first “iF Public Value Student Award” in 2016.

Second Prototype


Meet Michael Leland

A local binner (aka “waste picker”) in the downtown eastside of Vancouver. He shares his past, how he became a binner, and the challenges he must face on a daily basis. Eventually we discover his involvement in the Binners’ Project, a group of waste-pickers dedicated to improving their economic opportunities, and reducing the stigma they face as informal recyclable collectors.
