MAKE London Designer Profile: Laura Briscoe

Keyboard_keys_with_lightLaura Briscoe is a teacher at Oakridge Secondary School who is passionate about engaging her community in the visual arts.

Her submission to MAKE London is called “Miss Communication.” Behind the Screen is a skirt made out of strands of keyboard keys. When tweets are sent to the skirt, the keys will spell out the message on the skirt. The goal of this design is to encourage people to think critically about the positive and negative effects of social media.

You can follow the Miss Communication twitter account at @mis_comm.

In addition to designing Behind the Screen, Laura has encouraged several of her students to submit original designs to MAKE London as well. We look forward to highlighting their designs in the coming days.

If you’re interested in how local makers are creating stunning works of art, attend the MAKE London Wearable Technology and Made Clothing Fashion Show, March 20th at Museum London. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door – expect an evening of art, dance, music, and creativity.
