My name is Sabrina, I am a French Vietnamese puppeteer (theatredu1k.com) based in London, working with digital and analogue materialities. Currently a PhD candidate in the smart textile department of the Design School at the Royal College of Art, I explore, in a post-digital context, the uncanniness of colour changing materials from a storytelling perspective. In this blog, I share with you a sample of works I produced during my exploration of materials and tools for the PhD and some references about our environment I picked up along the way.
I am an artiste , semeuse d’histoires à dormir debout en théâtre d’ombres et de lumières , marionnette et masques en silhouette. Fabricatrice d’ improvisations visuelles de paysages et de personnages fantasmés.
