Kina Smith

Student, Class of 2015

I play with fabrication, solar power, data loggers, and the contemplate the responsible and conscientious use of technology. At ITP I am working on a multitude of projects centering around the coming environmental and energy crisis.

I work with digital fabrication tools, electronics and my hands, building tools and toys that will help those exposed to them in the 'right' direction.

I dream of a future where the staggering amount waste that western society produces has been reduced, and we have enabled small scale and local fabrication businesses to thrive. A future full of unique devices, beautiful colors, and not the apocalyptic wasteland that is described in too much fiction.
