I recently graduated from The New School where I completed a BA in Psychology & Visual Studies and a BFA in Integrated Design. I describe these degrees as encompassing a love for studying humans and love for studying things. I consider my “making” to be just that— a way of studying; of re-searching. Dissecting the material, the physical, the mundane in order to find the immaterial, the emotional, the profound. I don’t believe in static or pristine objects. I believe in objects that are alive. They intervene, critique and comfort. They have pasts, presents and futures. Although I make material things, and find comfort in the tactile world, I am overall more excited by the idea of creating the immaterial: interactions, emotions and empathy.
I find meaning in thinking metaphorically and believe that this leads to a more sustainable, thoughtful and engaging world.
