MA work

I am a designer-maker inspired by cultural anthropology. My work investigates the physical and emotional relationship we build with objects and with each other.

Intimacy Series Each element of my Intimacy Series explores a different platform for engagement and interaction, questioning our perspectives of and exploring social boundaries.

‘Treat Me Gently’ Hand-woven acupuncture needles express physical and emotional boundaries.
