patent no longer pending

Yesterday Trish and I received the first certificate of Patent-- on the work of Tactility Factory.
It should be the first of three patents where we are listed as inventors
That may seem slightly dull and bureaucratic but not many woman are listed as inventors on patents and for that reason we stand proud- especially- hard as it is to admit it - not too many middle-aged women receive patents!

Peripheries Conference

The Peripheries Conference is over! - Such a huge effort from Sarah, Agustina, Gamal, Keith, James, Paul and everyone else who helped to bring the conference to Belfast and all those amazing speakers. Everything went off so smoothly and the mix of really excellent keynote speakers, academics and practitioners made for a really stimulating 2 days)  Thanks to AHRA and all the support of QUB for allowing us to host the conference!

Stockholm visit

As part of Fatale's Feminist Futures lecture and workshop series I was invited to present the work of TF and PS2 in a presentation called: 'Fabrication and Ms.Conduct.' (12th October 2011) In the follow-on workshop the students came up with some products driven by feminist agendas- very interesting

FATALE is a group of architects, based at the School of Architecture, KTH, pursuing research and education within, and through, feminist architecture theory and practice.

The following day on the 13th Oct, I was invited to give a kitchen talk as part of the Swedish Arts Grants Committee's International Programme for Visual Artists
-again on work of PS2 and TF - this time to a wide range of artists, architects, designers and curators. IASPIS is a fascinating organization and I felt very welcomed. 

We are hoping that some collaborative work can emerge from these connections - so sincere thanks to those (Meike and Annika) who gave me this opportunity.
