MA work

Within Reach

My work is about how we/people can play and benefit from the forces and materials around us. From the belief that everything we need is just in our surroundings, my work aims to magnify the creative potential of local resources through within-reach and transparent technologies. Therefore the object is no longer a consumption-driven artefact but a genuine tool for creation and empowerment. 

One project is an experimental joining technique using plastic bottles. The other is a gravity-powered series of objects questioning our relationship to energy.
