Eleni Kalantidou is a repair analyst for Object Therapy.
Eleni Kalantidou is the Program Director of the Master of Design Futures at Griffith University, Queensland College of Art. She is a Design Psychologist, Researcher and Educator. Repair has been at the centre of her research activities through the funded projects ‘Handled with Care’ and ‘Handling E-waste with Care’, publications, workshops, curatorial and community work. Eleni is engaged in exploring repair by adopting a multifaceted approach that involves not only artefacts but also the community and the self. The focus of her work is to bring to the fore the existing cultures of repair and share in urbanised environments and make visible the necessity of re-evaluating contemporary psychologies and the practice of everyday life.
