“Designs should be totems reflecting the culture and social habits of the time.”
I have always been interested in bridging the gap between Art and Design . Through
time I discovered that technology is the vessel for traveling between the two worlds.Great design like great art contains traces of humanity because objects are meaningless without the values we place on them through context and culture.This dialogue between the creation and its intended audience is ultimately what am looking to challenge.
I am often juxtaposing the organic beauty of the natural world with the refined methods of an industrialized nation. Its a perspective I believe comes from identifying with indigenous groups. Creation for them was an innate extension of their being and is a lesson over industrialized countries can learn from . It aids the greater good if we create with thoughtfulness , sensitivity and in response to our environment rather than purely commercial interests. That is when we are able to create the totems that reflect the present while solving the problems that create a bridge to the future.
