hybrid coffeemaking (2018 – ongoing)

WhatsApp Image 2018-07-26 at 16.51.18I am repurposing the system of an automatic coffeemaker into a wearable device. This might not make much sense from a practical level, and I don’t know if it will be a particularly enjoyable experience either. What I am hoping it will enable me to do, is to better understand the different human and non-human processes and concerns that come together through making coffee in this way. Through designing a coffee maker like this, I want to open up new directions for design that come with such an intertwined understanding of relating to things.
