Mascha is a research fellow at the Center since September 2018. She holds a Bachelor in Fashion Design and a Master in IT Product Design. Her research centres around the body. She combines practices from sewing and textile design, and principles from participatory design with wearable technologies. Mascha builds on the creation of (wearable) prototypes to explore various materials and to speculate on better inclusion and understanding of diverse bodily experiences.
