The Unbearable Lightness of Being

This was a project in which we were asked to develop a brief for the redesign of a book of our choosing. In Milan Kundera's novel The Unbearable Lightness of Being, I chose to take into account the historical context of the Prague Spring (around which the plot of the novel is constructed), tying in themes of heaviness and lightness, lust and longing, as well as struggle and balance.

Included is an additional exercise during the same project for a redesign of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorain Gray.

Artist Statement:

My work investigates the feedback loop that causes people to make decisions based on the body. I am interested in the way we interact with our environment, and the design decisions which can affect response. I concentrate on the didactic processes of design, studying the way our bodies learn, perpetuate, and advance through interaction with tangible reality and haptic experience.
I focus my attention on systems, patterns, and schematic organizations already in place that cause people to behave in a specfic way.
I value my ability to move across diciplines, aligning myself with collaborators, applying design methodologies, and developing an understanding of new tools and materials, as well as new practices and techniques.
