Hello, I’m Ella.

I create interactive experiences at the intersection of design, fashion, technology, and wonder. 

 

My work revolves around themes of interconnectedness, awareness and the body. I use clothes and costumes as a form of storytelling through which I explore the collective unconscious, archetypes, and relationships.

 

In my process I combine computational media and physical computing to develop and enact ideas. 

 

These days I’m a computational media PhD student and researcher at the Social Emotional Technology Lab of University of California Santa Cruz which is led by Professor Katherine Isbister. There I’m focusing on wearable technology and social interactions.

 

I received my master’s from the Interactive Telecommunications Program [ITP] at Tisch School of The Arts, NYU where I got to explore computational art, design thinking and all sorts of ideas.
