I am a research driven design technologist
creating playful interventions to reframe societal issues.
By conducting extensive ethnographic research, I find points of intervention in complex socio-technical problems. Then I design playful interventions that challenge these issues by utilising creative coding and physical prototyping.
My recent project Street Debaters aims to change the act of begging into a job to create public discourse through playful artifacts.
Graduating from MSc Design for Interaction in TU Delft, I have backgrounds in HCI (Human Computer Interaction) and industrial design with a strong passion for game design (And sushi!)
Originally from Japan, I am now based in the Netherlands. Currently looking for a new adventure so drop me a line if you want to collaborate!
