MA work

I work to innovate and challenge current thinking by making. Drawing from cutting-edge technologies and human insights, especially the tension between the two, provides fruitful inspiration for solving the problems faced by today’s troubled world.

My final project focuses on the mismatch between the modern world we are rapidly constructing and the human body that is struggling to adapt to it. By readdressing elements of the natural balance between man and his environment this project will benefit both.
