Vivian is an inquisitive and enthusiastic designer. Curious how the world works and what the world of tomorrow beholds. With interests in the fine line between fiction and reality and how they intermingle, she creates speculative scenarios. As she believes that design lends itself as a prism and research tool for an inquiry into the anthropogenic era and its complexity. She is looking for designership on the borders of art, design, and science. By using questions to form narratives, outcomes vary from props to installations that bring to life alternative realities. Looking forward to combining environmental issues and design thinking through collaboration. She is not a biologist or a chemist, but practicing design gives her the opportunity to gain knowledge in areas other than design. To tell stories, ask questions and to give possible future scenarios.
