About Design Field Notes:
Each informal talk in this pop-up series brings a design practitioner to a Jacobs Hall teaching studio to share ideas, projects, and practices.

About this talk:
Paula Te thinks and makes with her hands at Dynamicland (, a non-profit research lab and community space. She's there to create a platform for learning that values the whole human body. Moreover, she is driven to make technology accessible in the widest possible sense—across cultures, abilities, and socio-economic statuses. Her research on tangible interfaces for digital fabrication has been featured at SIGCHI IDC and Prix Ars Electronica.

Previously, Paula worked as an interaction designer at Xerox PARC, and in design education in Kathmandu at Karkhana and in Boston at MIT. Other projects include 50 Years ( & TADCAD (
