Augusta Lutynski completed her bachelor's degree in Industrial Design at Emily Carr University and has a background in textiles and traditional shoemaking. Her design practice focuses on social practice, presence, and responsive making; often situating her work in public space and designing shared experiences. Since graduating she has worked as a clothing designer and pattern drafter, worked with the Vancouver School Board as a designer in residence, and is currently teaching high school Art and Craft.
The conversations, thoughts, and acts of production surrounding Augusta's practice are based in the unceded ancestral territory of the xʷmə𝜃kʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) nations. As makers and creatives, the land we work on and its histories are interwoven with practice, it is the responsibilty of artists and designers to actively think about the colonial systems perpetuated through practice.
