Second Skin

Second Skin

It was months ago during my public crit with Stuart Horodner, that “product design” was mentioned in reference to my work. Since beginning graduate school, I’ve been interested in these attributes, unable to find a word to articulate my artistic desires.

I can understand now. I think this object is so beautiful and flirts with what art can be. It holds allure in form, one can imagine touching the material, the documentation encompasses marketing… all of this effortless all the while holding my attention in awe.

Now, how do I accomplish it in my own work? 🙂


60 Minutes, how to design breakthrough inventions

IDEO: I want to be on this team. I’m going to apply hear. the passion, collaboration, and prototyping. I’m going to apply!

This embodies the direction I want to go into with my work.***  I think his work is gorgeous.. all of it. visual indulgence. Concept is almost secondary, in my opinion. This guy has a “philosophy” not an artist statement.. hmm. enjoy.


***I believe I can unite all my concepts and themes I’ve worked throughout over the past few years–identity, marketing, the manufactured/product, materiality, and the darkness behind the illusion. <<<high hopes, but I’m confident. I have 3o pages of sketches, many projects lined up… materials on order.


3d prints, update

3d printer has been slowing me down. spent about 7 hours the past 2 days troubleshooting. the extruder jams again and again. Its frustrating. On a positive note, I had a successful test print and redesigned the remote. Also fabricated a valve for another piece, that will pulse. prints to come below.

if you’re not sure about what you’re looking at, this is similar to a tricuspid valve in a heart. Its been modified to suit my needs. new controller below. will be print and cast into silicone. >>>>

In between

This summer has provide a decent break and I have a surplus of sketches that I want to 3d render. I’m very excited to begin my next projects.. and there are many!!!

This next SERIES (yes, I have planned my first series/body of work) is the continuation of “accidents happen” my wall orifice. Although my work centers around material/design/product, i want to use this venue to begin to investigate larger systems and structures.I would prefer not to address anymore until production is underway. Again, this blog is to inspire conversation/perk curiosity. photo I hope you find the images enticing. again.. very excited!!!Screen Shot 2013-07-04 at 11.51.32 PM Screen Shot 2013-07-04 at 11.50.57 PM
