Remote Intimacy

I am about experience, understanding and feeling. Objects are experiences, and my experimentally driven life and work at the RCA have been built around this concept.

Am I in your space? Or are you in mine? Designing for an object’s ‘personal space’, and our perception of when we are intruding into it, can have fascinating outcomes. I have explored how we feel for the objects we interact with, to seep this experience and intuition into our daily interactions.
