Ameera Kawash Portfolio

ABOUT

I am a Palestinian/Iraqi/American artist, writer, creative technologist, and startup founder. My PhD thesis at the Royal College of Art focuses on artistic interventions around value creation in digital economies, redesigning speculative processes to recalibrate care and consent in current media systems.   

I have a Psychotherapy & Counselling certificate from Regent's University.

Or:bital Bloom

is a virtual garden that blooms as companies green. We transform sustainability data into dynamic animations that incentivise and reward corporate environmental action. Our startup is a finalist in Terra Carta's 'Design Lab' competition.
