An inaugural WIRED Innovation Fellow, Rachel Wingfield is the co-founder and Creative Director of Loop.ph, the spatial laboratory that investigates responsive environments inspired by the study of living systems. Wingfield speculates on near and far future scenarios that explore emerging biological and technological futures by crafting space, technology and living materials into visionary experiences and environments.
