Design is something that often exists in the background. We have been saturated with beautiful, hideous, useful and irrelevant objects to the extent that most design fills a space we barely register. Yet, when exceptional circumstances dictate, such as when a disaster or crime occurs, we are reminded that objects also exist as equipment, evidence and artefacts. Here design becomes a medium to facilitate, document or critique systems hat are often rendered intangible by their invisability, scale or complexity.
My projects place objects as central figures within speculative narratives, viewing design as a means to explore, experiment and define larger systems.
