My work focuses around ideas of perception, illusion and media. I am particularly fascinated by the intersection of human and artificial perception and how design could play an important role in accommodating or misleading this new hybrid perception. I communicate the story through the use of different mediums ranging from physical objects to video and performance. The objects that I design, I don’t consider products, but props that facilitate and guide the plot of the fictional narrative.
