MA graduate Lena Bush at Falling Walls Lab in Berlin

Goldsmiths Design alumna Lena Bush has just participated in the Falling Walls Lab in Berlin, an interdisciplinary conference where 100 young bright minds from all over the world and from a variety of backgrounds got to present their innovative ideas in 3 minutes each and to compete for awards offered by a jury of professionals from science and business. Lena, who is a 2013 graduate of our MA in Design: Critical Practice, was selected to take part in the Berlin final at the London Falling Walls competition in September. She presented as a Goldsmiths student and her pitch was centered around her project „Stitch in Time”, “a sustainable fashion campaign which motivates consumers to co-design things they buy, adding value to personal time traces and the do-it-yourself practice”. (You can read more about Stitch in Time on Lena’s website HERE).

While Lena did not win the final, the presentation in Berlin was a great opportunity to make her project known to the world, especially since the event was livestreamed in full. Her trip to Germany was sponsored by the organisers. Footage from the final conference has not yet been posted online, but you can watch a video of highlights from the London selection event HERE.
