At Harvard's School of Design, Catherine investigated new materials and computer aided design fabrication.
Catherine is an architect by training with two plus years of experience in the fashion and jewelry design field. Between Boston and LA, Catherine continues her research began while in graduate school. At Pratt, then Harvard, she explored fabrication processes such as robotically wound carbon and glass fibre structures, 3D digital woven textiles for light structures, and 3D printed rigid and soft multi-material structures.
''A current interest of mine is the possibility of spatial existence at the smaller one to one scale (...)''
As an architecture student, Catherine’s early academic background has been one of exploring the relationship between body and the space it inhabits. Yet, her personal and graduate research focused on a different scale of relationship, between the body and wearables.
Catherine’s series of digital images are generated from algorithms she developed herself, and from existing models she manipulated.
