- Artist in residence
Jesse is an Amsterdam-based designer focusing on creating objects that question the established relationship between designers, producers, and users, which as a result speculate on new systems of making. Jesse initiated an independent practice in 2012 after graduating from the designLAB at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam.
With roots in the DIY communities of Fab Labs and makerspaces, his work explores how new approaches to making can influence daily life. Currently, he is investigating alternative approaches to the production of everyday things through the ongoing collaborative platform Hacking Households. In September 2017, Jesse Howard started his residency at Waag as part of the 3Package Deal Social Design.
