We’re kicking off a new interview series to complement our regular podcast episodes — a collection of detours, full of conversations that go into uncharted territory with some of our favorite thinkers, makers, and tinkerers. We’re still going to be bringing you monthly Destination DIY stories. These conversations will just be an additional stop (and download) along the way. We hope you enjoy it and, please, let us know what you think!
Our guest for this inaugural detour is Kate Bingaman-Burt. She's a maker, illustrator, and associate professor of design at Portland State University. You may have seen her work in her long-running series of zines, which became the book Obsessive Consumption, in which she documented her daily purchases. She also designed the paper that goes in the basket with your Chipotle burrito.
Kate is fascinated by outdated technology, like cassette tapes, and she's not a very effective thief. Destination DIY's Julie Sabatier sat down with Kate inside a geodesic dome that serves as the headquarters for Design Week Portland.
Kate's multimedia show, including eight years of daily drawings, More, More, More is going on at Liquid Agency through the end of 2014.
