Experience at SAIC

Meeting students from all over the world and learning from my students has been the most fascinating aspect to my SAIC experience so far. They keep me up to date with what is happening in the world of an art and design student in 2013/4

Personal Statement

Jessica is a speculative designer with experience working for both public and private sector organizations to explore the future implications of their field. She explores ways of using design to unravel and provoke rich interactions between people, technology, products and services. Whether critiquing science-related themes or exploring how science and technology development affect our attitudes towards death and mortality, Charlesworth's work addresses fundamental questions about society?s institutions, ambitions and behaviors.

Since graduating from the Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art, she has run her own practice conducting speculative design projects, often collaborating with scientists, futurists, designers and academics including think tanks Foresight (UK) and the Institute for the Future (US).
