The Metal Pillow, 2016

 

There are many everyday objects that we take for granted, the pillow is undoubtedly one of them.In this project, I changed a substance from its physical state of soft to solid in order to invite you to spend some quality time to appreciate the beauty of the pillow.

Since the idea of an interactive space was part of this project, a Shōji, or Japanese screen, provides a distinct area for visitors to interact with the metal pillow. I built a wood frame construction on one side with fur fabric stitched to the back of the screen, this can be seen as a contrast to the pillow thereby creating a strong visual impact.

What The Story, 2015

 

This project started with a keyword – invisible – that related to the people who work behind the scenes. As an example, a composer is one of those who expresses their feelings and experiences to create rhythm, as every circle on vinyl articulates different stories. Based on this idea I made a turntable with paper and wood, using the second hand of a clock to make the stylus move along the paper vinyl.

Info

A recent graduate of the Grafik Design BA course at the University of the West of England, Bristol. There, and as a designer and artist interested in all aspects of visual communication, I have gained valuable experience designing advertising and event materials including publications, posters, backdrops and advertisements. I am proficient with industry-standard design software including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premier and After Effects.

In addition to these skills, I have a further more personal interest in using narrative film making and photography in the exploration of my conceptual ideas and preoccupations. In relation to this, I have developed a strong awareness of the requirements of art direction and production.

If you have any questions regarding my work, or would like to get in touch, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
