Shoot the Stylist!

Neo-analogue play power for a post-materialistic Age

I feel designers must now confront the new reality of post-materialism and ask the question of how to add value to the experience of design.

My work addresses the alienating nature of modern urban life. The objects I create prompt the rediscovery of lost basic emotions - referencing tactile, domestic forms but using touch and play to combat the monotony of urban life.

By using humour and ambiguity I hope to reach people on an emotional level, challenging them to rekindle the lost art of happiness.

I am interested in commissions for both commercial and exhibition work.
