Applying multidisciplinary approach, Sarit aims to develop Making-Thinking, teach and provide designers and artists skills and techniques to Make.
Sarit will share her story as a “bilingual” in the design industry: the way she practices technology as a raw material and as a tool for self-expression and what does it mean to teach digital technology as a language.
