About me

Lisa Mandemaker is a researcher and designer based in London. She has a strategic, contextually aware and CRITICAL approach to research and practice. She uses products and product design across physical and DIGITAL PLATFORMS to challenge assumptions and explore connection, emotion and collaboration. Making IMPACTFUL, topical work and creating strong interventions are key elements to her practice. Her work centres on the effects of EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES and contemporary media, on people and their behavior. With her most recent work Meta Search she focuses on our currently limited personal and cognitive interpretations of online existence.

Distinction

Royal College of Art

  • Awarded a distinction for my MA Dissertation '#iamyourbiggestfan', focused on the design of Justin Bieber and his ‘Beliebers’. Exploring the construction of the relationship between an idol and a fan, and how the construction of celebrity functions on different levels, I took the concept of celebrity apart as a culturally fabricated product, to understand the systems behind it.
