MA work

I create functional products for the market. However, these works are created in a hyper-real space, a highly referential world where reproductions and iterations of classic typologies become far removed from their source material, rendering a new set of values that is arguably a much closer representation of our desires. These examples reveal truths, inconsistencies and functional rationalities about modern consumer tastes and culture. Drawing from (post-)internet, DIY and corporate culture my work often exists in a forceful intersection between cheaply produced readymades and components with a polished design sensibility.
