STATEMENT OF ART:
Observation, research, and dialogue are at the core of creative synthesis. Context makes stories whole and relevant; the same is true for design. Products, users, environments, as well as materials and manufacturing processes are interrelated - they create context. Ideas imbue objects with meaning. The concept, informed by context, is what justifies a product’s reason for being. Fresh concepts bend, reinvent and blend typologies. From a building to a bottle opener, details can engage the senses to create an emotional connection and tell stories. These connections are what I refer to as “moments”. Moments are when a detail or feature captures and holds our attention for an instant or makes us look twice. Taken together, the details of a product are analogous to montage in film making, each detail equivalent to a motion picture cell. Details can express visible affordances that allow the user to intuitively understand a design’s function and its contextual relationship to the surrounding environment.
