Feminist Co-design, 2016

I hosted ten feminist co-design workshops at the Women’s Center for Creative Work (WCCW) in Los Angeles, USA. The WCCW is a feminist co-working space for artists and designers. My collaborators and I explored how feminist thinking and design thinking merge.

Each project took a different direction. One of my favorites was a junk drawer in the shape of a woman’s belly. A user could fill the belly with junk as if it were eating it and press on the belly to excrete the contents. We developed two working prototypes based on a mold of my torso. The design was playful, but also an opportunity to introduce a positive representation of a woman’s body into the surroundings.
