Carolina Ramirez-Figueroa is a Senior Lecturer in Information Experience Design at the Royal College of Art. Carolina’s research explores the challenges and opportunities found when living systems are understood as a form of matter for design. She is interested in understanding the cultures, practices, tools, and economies of working and designing with living systems at different scales, ranging from experiences, products, architecture, and urban ecologies. Carolina's work also looks at imagining and delivering possible futures to challenge and provoke discourses on future technological, social, cultural, political, economic, and environmental issues. Carolina has collaborated with a number of artists, designers, and scientists, and has exhibited, and participated in different art and design venues around the world including Helsinki, Edinburgh, Belgium, Canada, Taiwan, and Japan.
