    Interior and Spatial Design

    Chelsea College of Art and Design

    Aug 2012 - May 2015
    • Finished my degree with a First Class Honours. I approached my spatial design practice as an exchange of reflections rather than objects or spaces. It is a system of thought in itself and my interest is to produce knowledge. Not necessarily knowledge that will change something, rather knowledge that will allow us to find new ways of thinking and contemplating the spaces we inhabit. My dissertation title was Art, Politics, Space: A Critical Survey of Contemporary Latin American Site-Specific Art (2000-2010), and also achieved Distinction.
