Josh's research is based in design inquiry and exploration with an eye towards craft, ephemerality, distortion, chance operation, and the interplay of analog and digital modes of production. Recently Josh's research has been aimed at design pedagogy and the ways in which design education can extend beyond the classroom into liminal spaces wherein unforeseen opportunities for teaching and learning can take place. He hopes that through this research spaces, created through inquiry and community outreach, can be made wherein formal experiments can create unknown publics, all voices and designed works can be seen as valid, and a more authentic sense of communication can come into focus.
