Tea Uglow, Australia (2016)
Tea Uglow is based in Sydney, Australia and has been part of Google’s Creative Lab for the last ten years. Her work consists of experimental design and culture projects that merge physical and digital properties of culture in non-virtual ways.
Projects are collaborations with artists, publishers, museums and culture orgs that explore new forms of creative practice using digital tools. Previous projects include Editions at Play, Life in a Day, (with Ridley Scott) and the YouTube Symphony Orchestra (LSO) and partners like the Royal Shakespeare Company, LEGO, NASA and the Science Museum.
Tea speaks globally on innovation, creativity and diversity. Her 2015 TEDx talk has over 1.5 million views.
She is also transgender. There is an open letter about her transition at bit.ly/about_tea but really, it isn’t that relevant to her work. She has two young sons.
