“It matters what matters we use to think other matters with; it matters what stories we tell to tell other stories with; it matters what knot knot knots, what thoughts think thoughts, what descriptions describe descriptions, what ties tie ties. It matters what stories make worlds, what worlds make stories” Donna Haraway, Staying with the Trouble.
Becca Rose Glowacki is an artist, researcher, and educator. She makes playful education based work that incorporates storytelling, craft, and technology. She combines textile techniques, paper crafts, and smart materials to explore how age-old knowledge in the hands can inform the way we learn about new technologies. Her work draws from critical pedagogy, and through exploring new approaches to teaching and learning with new media she attempts to question and challenge how we view technology.
Becca studied design at Goldsmiths, University of London. She is a senior lecturer in Creative Media Design at the University of the West of England, a member of the Digital Culture Research Centre, and resident at the Pervasive Media Studio.
