RepairAbility: repair making

RepairAbility is both a personal project and my PhD research. Through it I have used repair to explore making, community and object narratives. Since starting to investigate repair in 2012 it has become a literal and metaphorical element of my practice.

By rooting myself in design activism, I  have expanded my studio practice through visible, material repairing, and through social practices such as volunteering and facilitating repair workshops.

My work also explores and defies assumed aesthetics surrounding the recycled, renewed and repaired.
