He's based in San Francisco and works creating and prototyping airplanes, automobiles, dressing rooms, alarm clocks and alternate visions of the present and near-future. He formerly worked at frog leading the rapid prototyping practice in Seattle and at Teague creating novel interactions for industrial and product design.

As part of this year's programme, Joshua will be facilitating a 2-day workshop on Computer Vision for Mixed Reality
We sat down with Joshua to talk about his fascination for Computer Vision and our complicity as designers in/of technological systems.
