2020-2021 BFA thesis statement:

For the betterment of value to innovation, one should emphasize and equate empathetic design to design thinking. The way I will explore this is by mixing emerging & ‘outdated’ technologies, playing with nonlinear narrative structure, semiotics & the perceptible awareness of all six senses in order to expand visual communication.

unscented candles; AR experience

“Perhaps the Doors, Curtains, Surface Pictures, Panes of Glass, etc. are metaphors of despair, prompted by the dilemma that our sense of sight causes us to apprehend things, but at the same time restricts and partly precludes our apprehension of reality.” – gerhard richter
