Tilt sparks new ideas, challenges our perceptions, and brings myriad wonders into the everyday. It’s a space to connect with artists, researchers, and thinkers. We ask questions, without fixed answers. We learn. We unlearn. We embrace friction and value different perspectives. And we invite you to join us in exploring with intent.

Marni Bowman is a transdisciplinary designer whose materials-driven projects utilize wide-ranging research, tying in history, science, speculation, trends and more to propose new material systems. While the medium differs with each project, the overarching theme in her body of work proposes alternative models of co-existing with nature that ask the viewer to supplant disbelief with an amused optimism.
