My name is Josh Shiau and I am from Chelmsford, Massachusetts. I am majoring in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design. Whether in the woods teaching boy scouts how to improvise for broken or lost equipment, troubleshooting while designing and building a guitar from scratch, or creating kinetic art, I really enjoy using my own hands and ingenuity in creative problem solving. I believe that innovative and thoughtful design is key to creating a more efficient and sustainable society. With this project I hope to experiment with way we (re)use and interact with materials and to inspire thought and conversation about the role of art and design in the modern world.
