SFU dutch Design & italia Design Field Schools
dutchDesign and italiaDesign are bi-annual field schools that are part of the School of Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University. In 2013 and 2014, I was selected as a part of a competitive entry research/film team. I traveled with 2 teams and field school director Russell Taylor to the Netherlands, France Italy and Belgium. We conducted interviews with top designers, explored and studied european city cultures.

In 2013. Based on our research, my partner Vivian Chan and I developed the interview narratives and boiled down approximately 2-hour interviews content to 8-10 minutes to better communicate the designers' core values, methodologies and their design processes. We produced interview videos for Piet Hein Eek, Daan Roosegaarde and de Culinaire Werkplaats.
