The Prints of Prints series takes the physical photographic print as its subject. Brown paper, glacine and other photo related paper products were used to frame the edges and collage them in front of the camera lens. Through digital artifacting and mis-color calibration over generations of printing and reshooting, the initial palette of grays, browns and whites appeared as color.

San Giorgio Mykonos Pop-Up Hotel
The emergence of the pop-up hotel has become popular amongst affluent travellers. The San Giorgio Mykonos Pop-Up Hotel by Design Hotels and Paradise Club caters for those looking for a unique holiday experience. In 2012, the hotel originated as a six month experiment but after proven success it will reopen in 2013. The hotel is a ‘contemporary take on bohemian luxury where the emphasis is on simplicity and craftsmanship.’
Mood: Simplicity & Refinery
Getting away from it all is the ultimate luxury. We live in such a hyperconnected world where digital technologies can often take over our lives. Time is a luxury and spending quality time with friends and family can be considered more valuable.
Mind Map showing my initial ideas for the future of luxury. Using the research model in Martin Raymond’s ‘The Trend Forecaster’s Handbook’, I analysed the trend innovators, drivers, impact, consequences and future of mindful luxury.
The project is a composition in which time and space are shaped through the most minimal use of sound, light and visual elements.
Light Show at The Hayward Gallery
Light Show explores how we experience and respond to light and colour. It’s an engaging exhibition that encompasses conceptual and political concerns. It went above and beyond my expectations; the installations, sculptures and illuminated environments fully immerse you as an individual. A place to contemplate and really appreciate the artwork around you.
Involving all of the senses, the light displays give visual puns to the outside world. I really like the use of neon light and open space for the individual to experience. Anthony McCall’s You and I, Horizontal (2005) was particularly avant-garde and engaging, using a haze machine and computer scripting to create a 3D space that incorporates the viewer.
Sleep Cycle App
The Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock application uses the accelerometer in your iPhone to monitor your movement during sleep to measure what stage your at. The app is designed to wake you up when you are feeling most relaxed and rested, the lightest sleep phase. Each morning you get a visual graph to show you your sleep pattern. Biohacking in a more refined and simplistic way.
One on One Exhibition, Berlin
Curators are always looking at finding new ways to present art to the public. The KW Institute for Contemporary Art has created individual environments that let the viewer experience the installation on a one to one basis. The individual space and minimalist approach builds a stronger connection between the audience and artist, heightening engagement and interaction.
The Creators Project Live 2012
A collaboration between The Creators Project, Doug Carmean from Intel Labs and Social Print Studio to create the social touch display. They produced an interactive installation that when when users swipe their hand over the display, time instagram photos zoom in and out. The project explores the idea of combining technology with tactility for more immersive experiences.
