Meg Grant (NZ/NL) is a designer, technologist and maker, researching smart textiles and wearable electronics. Recurring themes are the history of computing and an irreverent approach to critical design. Her work uses humour and a playful view of human nature combined with an emphasis on the aesthetics of electronics, tailoring and handcrafting techniques.
Formally trained in Fashion Design and a self-taught programmer, equal passions for interactive media and textiles guided her naturally into wearable technology as both an art form and a field of research. She is active in the Arduino and online open source hardware communities and is a founding member of the v2_ eTextile Workspace in Rotterdam. Her work has been featured on numerous blogs and publications, including Wired Online, Trend Hunter, Fashioning Technology and CNet. She has taught Wearables at Aalto Design School in Helsinki and Smart Textiles at the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam. She lives in Amsterdam.
She used to have bright red hair, but is too lazy to make a new photo, so will just change this one to black and white:
