Hello! My name's Chrissy, I recently graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) with a BFA in Fibers and minor in Fashion Design.
I focus my work on two main themes: developing textile sensors intended for integration into wearable technology applications and creating assistive products for individuals with disabilities or medical needs. I see the physical connection inherent in textiles as an apt vehicle for bringing tech closer to the human in a comfortable, approachable way, and believe that the advantages technology brings should be used for those whose quality of life they could vastly improve. By continuous practice and experimentation, I hope to develop sensing structures that can seamlessly integrate into assistive apparel that positively impacts others' lives.
