Assembly of Youth
A digital installation that brought the voices of children from all over the world to the heart of United Nations Headquarters in New York.
It was installed for the General Assembly, on the 25th of September 2015, bringing children’s hopes and needs to the attention of world leaders as they convened to discuss a set of new universal targets. A series of thought- provoking questions was sent to a network of children in developing countries – enabling them to respond for free, from any type of device, so that their messages would appear in the UN headquarters in New York.
A personal project that brought the imagination of kids to life, by turning their whimsical chair drawings into real life furniture.
Whilst at university a friend and I conducted an experiment in which a class of 7-8 year olds were given a piece of paper with the words, ‘please draw a chair’. After a couple of hours and a lot of broken crayons, the children had designed their dream chair. With an overwhelming selection of amazing designs, we set ourselves the challenge of building two of our favorites. We eventually gave the chairs back to the kids as a memento of their brilliance.
The Pocket Book
‘The Pocket Book’ plays on our behaviour and relationship with books. It was designed and perfectly molded to fit into one’s back pocket.
The book was designed in response to a brief from Swiss Bookbinders, Bubu, who wanted a way of demonstrating the creative possibilities within bookbinding. My approach was to look at how we use and interact with books, and how they sit within our environment. I then turned everyday behaviours into a new design solution.
