Explorations of the Wearable Future for Today and Tomorrow.


Probing the relationship between the virtual and the physical, I research the inevitable hybridisation of the human condition through a mix of technology, function and fantasy.


Using the premise of technology as magic, I combine materials and circuitry to create wearable wonders, exploring the possible futures of everyday accessories.
