Projects > Instead

In this body of work I investigate the emotion of desire. My exploration ranges from investigating consumer-desired objects to addressing the longing for long-term fulfillment in life. I look at possible substitutions and project my own longing for a different, more intense, pure life that involves an idealized dream of living in the country.

I believe my search touches upon today’s Zeitgeist, containing a layer of dissatisfaction, unrest, and a longing for change hidden in most of us.
