Emilie Giles is a producer, artist and educator. Her work spans creative technology, pervasive gaming and maker culture. She is based in London and works for Codasign as Producer and as an educational expert for Technology Will Save Us. Emilie also runs workshops for MzTEK, an organisation that aims to encourage more women to learn skills in creative technology. She is a member of the Open Systems Association, a group formed of past and current students from Goldsmiths College interested in critical and theoretical practices.
Emilie is currently in the process of setting up The Creative Kit Company with designer Alan Waldock. They are interested in how traditional craft practices can be joined with creative technology to give people cross disciplinary skills within arts and design. The outcome of this exploration are kits which allow for craft based making to become embedded with LEDs, sensors and conductive materials.
