Midway through 2020, I was contacted by Miles Worner, who is studying at Design Academy Eindhoven and was keen to do an internship with me, as part of his study. My instinct was to, politely, turn him down as it felt like one change too may, given that my PhD would also start around this time. Having spoken with a few people and having recalled how formative my own internship was, I decided to go ahead and Miles The Intern spent the months of October 2020 to February 2021 with me.
In preparing for his arrival, the mantra that teaching helps to formulate your own thinking started to ring true. Additionally, Miles challenged the very existence of and my approach to my work.
Through his time here, we explored a great many concepts and created a wide variety of work, as documented here: Miles Meets Sam
