Chair of MFA in Collaborative Design and MA in Design Systems
Skye Morét is a data-driven designer and marine scientist. Her diverse background on the ocean—having sailed 100,000 miles around the globe—fuels her belief in the power of art and design to critically engage citizens with the ecological complexities and dependencies of our planet. Skye’s work uses data-driven design and visual storytelling to investigate the relationship between nature and technology-mediated human expectations and experiences, specifically in the contexts of political ecology and climate justice. Skye has consulted for clients ranging from the United Nations Environment Programme and Planet Tracker to The Nature Conservancy and Nike, and was previously the Design Director at data visualization studio Periscopic and Senior Researcher on TBA21–Academy’s Ocean Archive project. She has authored multidisciplinary publications in Science, Slate, Migrant Journal, Compound Butter, Popular Science, Roads & Kingdoms, and Public Radio International, among others. Her installations have been exhibited at Science Gallery Dublin, the European Parliament in Brussels, the shores of Bali, and at Palmer Station, Antarctica. Skye holds an MFA in Information Design and Visualization from Northeastern University and a BS in Biology from Oregon State University.
