Projects
  • The Prospectus for Alternative Pedagogical Practices (2022)
    The Prospectus for Alternative Pedagogical Practices (2022)The Prospectus for Alternative Pedagogical Practices compiles some of the most notable work of teachers, students, designers and academics who have redefined or are redefining how design is taught, learned and practiced on an international scale. The book documents 50 phrases inspired by 40 references collected from my research on some popular and some niche (historic or current) alternative design education models, as well as the research that some academics have already completed on the topic.
  • Family Tree (2021)
    Family Tree (2021)Family Tree collages my paternal and maternal family history into a5-generation family tree and flip-book publication, encased in an hard back cloth cover. Family Tree attempts to reimagine how we visualise and interact with our ancestry. 32 colours representing my great-great-great grandparents merge as the bloodlines pass, reaching full technicolour at my parents.
  • In Situ (2021)
    In Situ (2021)Pairing material from the Situationist International Archive with contemporary theory from McKenzie Wark’s The Beach Beneath the Street and Ellef Prestsæter’s These are Situationist Times, In Situ is a three-part publication that explores three essential strands of situationist theory: the act of Dérive, the concept of Détournement, and the publication, The Situationist Times. The Situationist International was made up of avant-garde artists, intellectuals, and political theorists. Using the the
  • Climate Class (2021)
    Climate Class (2021)Climate Class is a book I produced for the EU-funded design and research collaboration Plastic Justice. Featuring the work of 24 students across nine courses at Central Saint Martins, Climate Class explores themes of an ecological education: identifying harmful materials, innovating with more sustainable materials and promoting innovative pedagogy. Climate Class hopes to do as much question-raising as it does problem-solving. The book is a nod to the art students who acknowledge the significa
  • Climate Classroom: Teaching (2021)
    Climate Classroom: Teaching (2021)Climate Classroom is a project which offered the chance to ‘critique and improve your classroom in relation to the climate emergency’ through the acts of learning and teaching (brief written by Abbie Vickress). In the teaching element of the project, I created a four-part audiovisual animation series which intends to raise awareness about the climate catastrophe by identifying domestic hot water use as a significant contributor to CO2 emissions and offering cold showers as a simple solution.

  • Acts of Publishing (2021)
    Acts of Publishing (2021)Acts of Publishing was an Information and Systems brief set by Paul Finn and Simon Goode with the intention of exploring unintentional and intentional publishing. Seperated in Acts, the Cast (Class) collected, extended and edited different types of data. My one-week output for Act 02: Extend took the form of a 112-page concertina which was split into chapters of data about me. From stepcount and screentime to my digital identity, the publication is a raw and chaotic exploration of selfhood. In
