CD/DS Faculty Member Jooyoung Oh on Design Research
April 10, 2019
"Design Research is like studying mushrooms. We take a look at, smell, taste, touch and feel it. We study the environment, soil and plants around it. We study how it interacts with other species. The best way to get to know the mushroom is to become one."

Join PNCA's MFA Applied Craft + Design Chair Sara Huston, faculty member and mentor Abbie Miller and artist and craftswoman Annica Cuppetelli in conversation as they delve into their individual use of both hand work and machine techniques, and share their research on the various layers of production and information that are intertwined with objects, processes, and materials, as well as their need to evolve, adapt, and establish craft in relationship to making and industry.
