Design, Research + Fabrication
In the Spring of 2018, I completed my Masters of Design thesis from EmilyCarr University of Art + Design. Through design research, the thesis seeks to expose how we see and organize our homes through aesthetics, language and meaning. It considers how this affects our perception of our built and natural environments — our separation of space — in a social sense. A generative process-led design practice was used to find means, through artifact, to have others (first the designer, and in turn, users/consumers) think critically about current understandings of urban lifestyle, and aspirations connected to desired standards of living. It’s intent was not to find solutions for sustainable design but rather to communicate and promote consideration about sustainability, the home environment, and material culture. Thesis work was on display inThe Show at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, May 2018.
