Design Matters from the Archive: Tea Uglow

Tea Uglow is a designer with a swanky official title: she's the creative director for Google's Creative Lab in Sydney Australia. But in the fluid world of design and technology titles don't really tell you much about what the people behind them actually do, or who they are. Tea Uglow works on projects that help artists, writers, and performers use digital tools in their work. She's written books, designed websites, created apps, collaborated on films, plays, concerts, and exhibits. And this little resume doesn't even scratch the surface of her achievements.

Debbie talks with Tea Uglow about experimental digital projects that are pushing the boundaries of tech and art. “This is very much the principal with all my projects, just draw a line in the sand and put a flag there. Then at least someone might come over and look at the line and ask ‘What’s the flag for?’”
