artist / designer and tinkerer
Kelli Anderson is a designer interested in elegantly exposing the world's complexity—especially as it pertains to scientific concepts—through interactive demonstrations.
Obsessed, in particular, with “lo-fi magic”, she believes that an audience can be best engaged through handheld experiences. Prior projects include a pop-up book that becomes a pinhole camera (This Book is a Camera), her design and animation for Tinybop’s acclaimed Human Body app, her paper record player wedding invitation, or her infographic work.
This Fall, she will publish This Book is a Planetarium—a collection of functional pop-up contraptions which elucidate scientific principles in tactile terms (and…yeah, it includes a tiny paper planetarium.)
