Karey Helms (she/her) is an interaction designer and PhD student at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Her research explores the more-than-human implications of technological assemblages that proactively operate on the behalf of humans by designing within intimate settings of care. Such situations are often difficult to quantify and where an unintended consequence of technology can be revealing, shameful, or devastating for a diversity of bodily beings. This includes designing within queer scales of human bodily fluids, such as urinary infrastructures and breastmilk entanglements. Within autobiographic and speculative design methods, she draws upon feminist new materialisms and queer theories to implicate herself and unsettle bodily boundaries for a more careful design of technology.
