About Fergus

Fergus is curious. He wants to know who you are, why you’re here and how you got here, amongst a whole host of other things he doesn’t know.

He does know some things though. He has an intimate understanding of material, construction and craft, both digital and physical. He prides himself on an ability to prototype in a range of mediums from carpentry and clay to arduino and figma. He's an artist and technologist trying to figure out the best way to co-create with the machines. He’s seen the potential for emerging technology to bring people together, and is on a mission to design interactions that prioritise that togetherness.
 
He's also into a strange range of hobbies including dancing brazilian zouk, surfing, skating, rock climbing, music making, and diabolo.
