Jen Keane is a designer and creative researcher working at the intersection of design and science, technology and craft. Inspired by notions of sustainability, and a fascination with new digital and biological tools, she is exploring how new technologies could be employed to design a new generation of hybrid materials, and perhaps change our approach to making altogether. A recent graduate of the MA Material Futures program at Central Saint Martins in London UK, Keane worked previously for the German sportswear brand adidas in materials design, development and innovation strategy. Holding a Bachelor of Science in Fiber Science and Apparel Design from Cornell University, NY USA she takes a cross-disciplinary approach to material design and believes that a closer dialogue between science, design and industry is essential in bringing real change to our material value systems and means of production.
