< Owen Hodgkinson >


1988 - ... 

British, Born in Newcastle, currently living and studying in London.

Owen is currently studying 3D Design at Camberwell University of the Arts London. He is in the third year of the BA and has just completed an internship with Cesar Harada at Open_Sailing. His role was to research, design and construct the floating gardens for growing and harvesting food from the sea. The idea influenced the re-designing of the main vessel and now the concept is being developed further. Owen's ongoing study is on growing food in the urban environment. He hopes to learn and teach people how to become more self sufficient in controlling their supply of food as a reaction our current reliance in the potential fragile food systems of the city. He hopes to create designs and interventions to tackle this subject and to educate communities on a local scale to do the same.
