"I am fascinated with the idea of simplicity in design and how this may translate to technical innovations in not only products but the digital realm as well. My methodology consists of a pragmatic hands-on approach to understanding traditional craftsmanship and how this perspective can be applied to new innovations in design."
At the moment, Dana Cannam works researching emotional and symbolic contents and the encouragement of innovations for developing processes of new products. The aim is the development of a hybrid language which transports natural materials and innovative technologies by traditional handicraft, to the user easily.
