DISSOLVING THE DICHOTOMY
In my work, there are no barriers between art and design. My art is design, and my designs are art. They are not mutually exclusive, they exist simultaneously in both realms. My design alter ego is Bucketduck.
Connections to the past are important to me. I collect antique artifacts that have been kept safe by someone who considered them important enough to preserve, but over time have been discarded, sold, and forgotten. I use these to tell or retell a story, a fictional narrative spun from hints in the original documents.
