Irene Albino has trained as a Cultural Anthropologist in Rome, Italy, and as a Graphic Designer in Greece and the UK, and is currently an Associate Lecturer for the BA Graphic Communication Design at Central Saint Martins, UAL in London and a designer for the design consultancy Arup.

Irene’s practice operates in the intersection of queer theory, performative making and interdisciplinary artistic research, with a focus on crafts and traditional knowledge production in an effort
to understand the world through making and creative translations.

Irene has been interested in expanding the discussion of hybrid knowledge production between textiles, creative computing, and the Graphic Design field, through the ideation of collaborative
interdisciplinary workshops that investigate what graphic design can borrow from and lend to other disciplines, in what has often proven to be an inspirational exchange.
