An exploration of the everyday
I want to surprise you by making an ordinary moment stand out. Through the adjustments I created, the object becomes something to investigate and rediscover. Our everyday actions are often hidden behind simplicity and self-evidence, but they are important aspects in our lives. Moments of sensing, specifically touching, are the basis of the concept of materiality, and the extent to which we are guided by it.
My research is about everyday thoughtless actions. In the chaotic times that we live in, we are losing a very important signal: sensing the world around us. By diverting the focus from the large (the fast) to the small, I want to create a stronger and more conscious experience of everyday life.
