Hi all, I’m new here. Wanted to introduce myself. I’m Paula Te. I’ve heard so much about this community from friends and colleagues. Looking forward to meeting more of you here and in person eventually.
I am US-based (Seattle) but have family roots in Indonesia. I’m currently in Yogyakarta, Indonesia visiting Lifepatch this month. They’re currently running a residency with artists on sustainable agriculture, come visit if you’re in the area yuk
My main work is as a design technologist/researcher at https://interstitial.coop/ but I’ve had a special interest in digital fabrication techniques and teaching basic engineering skills to designers/basic design skills to engineers.
I’m excited about open digital fabrication, so this thread about open CAD is super cool. I’m concocting a workshop where the goal is to teach speculative design through digital fabrication with waste materials…
Please feel free to get in touch with me if you want to connect or collaborate! (DMing here works)
Also maybe if some other new people want to use this thread to intro themselves feel freee
