3_AXIS

Located in Balloch, Scotland, the residential retreat and performance hall will help children with a difficult family backgrounds reconnect with the nature and their surroundings. Seeking similarities between musical harmony, space and human body it is my intention to create a place of escape and contribute to childrens mental health through the interaction with my building, nature and music practice.

Site Plan 1_200

The site for the project is a cross point of three axis: Axis of journey, axis of escape and public/private axis. Laid out in an east-westerly direction, the building responds to its surroundings in a number of ways. The location of the buildings not only benefits from breathtaking views, but also is a part of environmental strategy. In order to achieve energy self-sufficiency, the project of a residential retreat is based on passive use of solar energy.

Floor plans of the Residential Retreat 1_200

The closer to the river edge the more private is the program of the residential retreat.

Perspective cross section of the residential retreat 1_50

The bridge in-between the two buildings is accessible from the sun space of the residential retreat creating the connection to the performance hall and practice rooms.

Residential Retreat - Model

Music Retreat

The combination of a residential and performance space is captured within the landscape of Balloch. Its beautiful surroundings remain interrupted with the buildings matching the tranquil setting. The juxtaposition of the buildings catches the eye of by passers and lures them in for more.

Interaction

The way the buildings interact with one another is portrayed in this social scene. An open private space connects the two buildings together, allowing the children to interact with one another and remain in a safe space.

Proposed Location Plan 1:2500

Situated at the bottom of Balloch Pier, the new retreat offers an inclusive for all type of performance art. Surrounded by nature, this allows privacy, creating a peaceful environment to gain creativity - outdoor activity can occur.

The bubble musical center

This project concerns a music center in Ballock comprising rehearsal rooms, an auditorium and accommodation for young musicians coming for internships. The idea here was to achieve an architecture which would reduce the carbon footprint as much as possible. I thought of one of my trips to Sicily (Italy) where I discovered very large ovens resembling large igloos used to produce handcrafted terracotta. These shapes are designed to minimize heat loss. This is why my project explores these unusual forms.

Little Venice of Cadiz

This project aims to respond to a future rise of sea level due to global warming. It is located in the lagoon of Cadiz. This Zone of Spain would be most affected by the rising waters because the level of land is very low. I therefore propose a partly floating village and partly on stilts This floating district is organized around a market on stilts. The inhabitants around the market sell fish, fruits and vegetables as well as products of marine culture (mussels, oysters and algae) in the market open to visitors. All these products can be consumed on site in small restaurants around the market forming small islands with panoramic views of the lagoon. Everything is produced by residents of the floating village, in floating greenhouses and fish and seaweed farming parks located around the dwellings. Leisure facilities can also be found in the district for inhabitants and to attract visitors from Cadiz: A volleyball court and a football field are provided as well as changing rooms and meeting rooms and small indoor sports halls. At the end of the district, there is an artificial beach of a unique shape reserved to bathers. Each home is designed: . to have maximum energy independence and a certain intimacy; . An external personal space sheltered from the sun; . And a pontoon to dock a boat Rainwater is collected by a steep roof, then directed to tanks located under the houses. Each unit has its wind turbine in order to produce its own energy as well as solar panels placed on the roofs.

'Sea Life Through a Lense'

This image represents my fundamental design goal: how to frame the natural beauty of Balloch. I took my inspiration from those unfortunate sea creatures who are imprisoned in restrictive and oppressive fish tanks in a sea life sanctuary on the loch. Whilst they are so close to the outdoors they are actually prevented from thriving outside in their natural habitat. In human terms I wanted to create a more positive relationship between inside and outside where visitors felt safe and warm inside but were drawn to the views of the loch and nature outside.

The Site Found

1:1000 Site Plan exemplifying the linear relationship between the residential and performance hall venues; imitating the pre-existing railway of Balloch which, its final stop was at the tip of the pier. The progression of a boat from jetty to jetty via both buildings and a canopy shaded pathway on land, shows the multipurpose links and modes of transport available as ways to accommodate the users when moving around the site.

'Portamento'

Mammals and nature co-exist between the walls of the residential retreat, through vast glazing, an indoor / outdoor living experience and materiality and design elements. On arrival visitors will observe a hanging façade of carved natural wood. The flowing, rippled appearance of the wood connects to sound waves created by children inside to the lapping waves of the river made by Mother Nature outside.

A Shared Culinary Experience

The communal kitchen provides a social and learning environment for all ages.

The Urban Demographic

What makes people want to stay? Currently, there is a state of impermanence in Merchant City. It is lively in at the weekend and empty during the week. It is seen as a place where time is spent passing through it rather then staying. Offering the amenities to have the choice to stay, whether you are an artist, student or young family is crucial to the design strategies.

Street Conditions; Light and Heavy Labour

Differences in light and heavy labour, changing position depending on light; heavy structures to the north of the site facing Wilson Street, and light structures to the south facing Trongate. The painting studio on the roof is a hybrid of heavy and light structure, allowing green space to envelope the studio in a tranquil setting. It becomes a garden and play space for children.

1:2500 Proposal in Context

The masterplan comprises a school, multi-generational housing units and an artists in residence unit. Colonnades invite you into the space, providing covered walkways and open spaces for markets and exchanges. A monument, not exceeding the heights of the surrounding context, acts as a waymarker in Merchant City.

Co-living cell archetypal: two cell types

This project focuses on the relationship between domesticity and labour in the contemporary society. Throughout rising of population in cities, sometimes it is hard to feel a sense of belonging and often feel lonely. Urban loneliness is connected to population mobility, declining community participation and a growth in single-occupant households. After a burnout day it is important to separate work from home, or spaces that can evoke that. Feeling of isolation is connected with high rates of people living alone. I will be studying precedents such as wellness centres and healing environments that architecturally promotes mental health and conclude by incorporating it in the co-living housing typology proposal.

Transitioning from work to home: social space

Decreased attention on personal spaces in living typology and lack on social interaction between others in the community, this contemporary ideology of architecture condition can have physical and mental effects on the individual. An unconnected society. Creating generous spaces for social bonding is the attention necessary in co-living typology and improve mental health.

Transitioning from work to home: cleanse

Architecture is used to create a route where step by step the user travels through the building is being cleansed physically and mentally from work and transitioning into domesticity. It is shown in the clear cohesion of spaces that are to function as physical cleanse or evoke the feeling of mental cleanse.

Spacial distinction section

A design that has additional opportunities to encourage users to lower their stress levels, internal and external qualities of a building that could result in having a positive effect on the user’s wellbeing and applying that in a city context. A sanctuary within the chaotic city life. An oasis.

From Urban to Oasis

Decreased attention on personal spaces in living typology and lack on social interaction between others in the community, this contemporary ideology of architecture condition can have physical and mental effects on the individual. An unconnected society. The design reevaluates the sense of community through a public pathway above ground that connects all buildings within the site. It allows for social bonding in the neighbourhood that feels safe. A place that can relieve the feeling of disorientation in the busy city, sense control when you are able to see everything in a new perspective. The contrast between urban and oasis, seeing buildings looking up in the city, but in the design being able to see them looking down.

Citadel Communities Block 1 in Proposed District.

The Citadel Community encourages as many domestic, production and commercial tasks to be performed in groups, by providing a variety of large functional spaces that surround a central gathering space - like the layout of Islamic Citadels. The dwellings are organized based on individual and group activities and the many terraces surrounding them provide opportunities to socialize and grow as a community.

Citadel Communities - District in Context.

Glasgow faces the challenge of finding ways to function more sustainably and create less waste whilst housing and providing work for an expanding population. By encouraging communities to live in organized neighborhoods whereby neighbors can support each other with domestic and laborious processes: resources can be shared amongst many citizens and waste can be reduced.

Citadel Communities Block 1 and Residential Cells.

The ‘Acoma Pueblo’ in New Mexico housed a society that lived harmoniously with each other and the natural world. Emphasis is put on spaces where domestic and production activities were performed in groups, these are shared by many multi-level dwellings which are efficiently organized. These layouts have informed the separation of activities in the residential cells of the Citadel Community and allowed more space for public, commercial and production areas throughout all the levels of Block 1.

Hypothetical narratives of living structures.Weaving Factory.

Weaving factory and urban garden on the edge This intervention is standing on the edge of the city. It is larger in scale than the previous two. The area is famous for crafts and hand made products. This intervention filled the understudied, complex, odd site. Weaving factory and urban garden facilitates the space for communal use of this craft neighbourhood and regenerate the area in a humble way. A small step of suggestive improvement with collective and participatory manner may lead to larger changes.

Bicycle repair station.

This structure is built from a collection of observed components around Kyoto. Its is almost the exaggerated performative interpritation of Kyoto rich urban patterns. It represents the clash of tradition and contemporary in ad hoc and bricolage manner. Function inhabits this structure in a process, also its size is never defined, it can grow, develop. There is an initial part provided by the architect/professional, but the rest is easily attached and developed by the community, users.

Deconstruction - reconstruction - deconstruction

Abandoned warehouses viewed as a resource in building a new masterplan, resulting in a circular use of materials.

Industrial and post-industrial areas of Antwerp

As industry has moved areas and buildings have been left behind, in close proximity to the city centre.

District plan: existing and proposed masterplan

33 warehouses have been identified in the district of Den Dam, which lack potential for new uses and for creating public space. These can be deconstructed in order to create a new masterplan made up of the same materials.

Catalogue of elements and materials

Elements and materials from the deconstruction process have been mapped and organised as a database for creating new buildings.

Deconstruction and its potential

Model 1 shows a method of mental deconstruction as a way to study each element of the space and building in relation to its qualities of light, texture, tectonics and spatial qualities. Model 2 shows one way of testing the new uses of structural elements.

Key Strategies

The Approach

wolvenberg watergarden

Inspiration is from Junya Ishigamis Biotop watergarden. Trees and puddles create a mesmerising space, where visitors can jump between the stones and explore the flora.

green ring vision

The ring road was built in the 1960’s and replaced the Brialmont fortifications from the 19th century. The ring road is highly dominated by road infrastructure, disconnecting the inner and outer city. However, it has potential of becoming a strategic area in the future city structure, turning into the Green Ring. The City of Antwerp has presented a plan with specific strategies for the Green Ring, focusing on green spaces that connects the inner and outer city, creating habitats for flora and fauna as well as for the people of Antwerp.

brialmont fortifications

To realise the Brialmont fortifications, huge earthworks took place. Soil was removed to make room for the forts and ramparts. Water canals were introduced and had to be dug out. The soil could then be used to build the ramparts. The principles historically used, ground manipulation and water introduction, have become factors informing a new language for the green ring, to bring a sense of what used to be in a present context. source of images: photograph - Natuurpunt Antwerpen Stad, map - Old Maps Online

parks of berchem - existing conditions

A specific site along the Green Ring has been chosen to explore certain strategies, namely the parks of Berchem. The parks include a few traces from the fortification, water bodies, topographical variations and masonry ruins. However, today the parks are fragmented by the ring road infrastructure.

proposal - landscape palimpsests

The method used for developing this project has partly been through landscape palimpsests. Designing through palimpsests is not about preserving the past but to celebrate a collective memory of the site for the users, even if it just provokes a vague mental presence that there used to be something different at this place.

The Virtue of Water and Salt (of the earth)

Deriving it’s name from a chapter featured in John Graham Dalyell’s 1834 work ‘The Darker Superstition’s of Scotland’, 'The Virtue of Water and Salt (of the earth)’ is an ongoing project. Belief in superstition has long been characterised as a sign of ‘low-intelligence’, and associated with societies most marginalised groups, such as the lower-classes, people with marginalised genders/identities, and people of colour. Superstition has arguably also played an important role in the lives of those who could not access essential yet costly amenities, from herbal remedies in place of the services of a costly doctor, to folk tales, impractical-practical advice and genuine reasons to socially interact with one another. This project aims to explore this second, less spoken of side to superstition.

Invisible Place/Hidden Cities

‘Invisible Place/Hidden Cities’ ‘Invisible Place/Hidden Cities’, developed after reading Italo Calvino’s ‘Invisible Cities’, was an exploration of the role of lanes and alleyways within cities and places. I had become interested in whether lanes, in their overgrown and neglected state, often served as a more truthful reflection of the goings on in the area they are located than the better-groomed roads and streets which encased them. The final series, depicted here, sought to articulate the feeling of being stood in a lane, where it is almost always slightly dark and claustrophbically narrow, cluttered with weeds, forgotten objects and discrete happenings, which are seldom tidied up as they would be elsewhere. They sought to ask the viewer whether the events and stories (good, bad and secret) which occur within them could happen anywhere but the enclosed space of a lane, or are they where these occurrences seek refuge, away from open spaces and prying eyes.

Balsyn

With a number of e-scent products being produced over the last few decades ultimately failing to do our olfactory systems justice, and some products such as iSmell joining the list of ’25 Worst Tech Products of All Time’, Balsyn aims to rebrand the digital scent industry into something we could imagine using in our daily lives in the future. The concept for this project comes from the discovery of a Japanese company that controversially uses the theory of vibration of olfaction, which argues that a molecule’s smell character is due to its vibrational frequency. By using this unproven theory, the design and aesthetic of a fictional product could be imagined in more creative and speculative ways. The product’s design consists of a flexible nose strip which is to be worn externally on the nose to interrupt the olfactory receptors inside the nose and brain and to replace any physical, real world scent with one that has been transmitted using either a phone or computer. The dot, a small circular sticker, is placed on the speaker of the phone or computer in order to pick up the vibrational frequency to then send to the nose strip. Both devices are made from TechnoGel, which is a breathable, flexible, waterproof and non-irritable, bio-degradable material. The name of the company and its logo were designed with the intent to feel like a global, large business and familiar like the big tech brands we know and use. The advert uses a template that the tech industry provides, to create the feeling of authority, innovation and the future.

A Type of Sound

A Type of Sound Creating a relationship between type and sound. Using the typeface Futura the geometric sans serif typeface which was based on visual elements of the Bauhaus design style of 1919 to 1933. Futura’s simple geometric circles, triangles and squares represent function over form, taking away the nonessential and decorative elements. Working with a local musician Pefkin https://pefkin.bandcamp.com/music to match sound to type and create a sonic typeface, I immediately thought of how soundwaves are graphically represented by triangle, sine, square and sawtooth waveforms. We assigned a waveform to fourteen letters, matching the shape of the letter to a waveform, and created 2 octaves worth of tuned sonic type. With the remaining 12 letters we created more percussive tones, using found sounds. Instruments used include Korg Volca FM, Korg Volca Modular, Doepfer Dark Energy, Korg Kaossilator, Arturia Brute, acoustic guitar, Aeolian Chimes found object sound sculpture, zither, ebow, chimes, hydrophone.. The sounds were treated using reverse reverb, pitch-shifting, backwards loops. Using After Effects the new typeface was animated and combined with the individual sounds to create an interactive typeface that was ever evolving into a new sound or shape with simple overlays, pitch speed and rhythm. Through a significant period of exploration and experimentation the project has evolved from a simple circle, to a sonic, visual and interactive typeface which can be applied in work, play or identity.

Ongoing series of still images part of a documentary titled '60, Seconds out',examining the semiotic structures of a boxing club as environment and of boxing as practice involving the body. Focusing on details such as sweat, fibres and pores, this photographic series aims to convey an intimate and sensory experience of boxing. The images, deliberately generated ‘in-between’ rounds lasting exactly 60 seconds, records the unique effects of boxing training on the individual as a suspension of time. From close-up portraits to contextualising environmental shots, ‘60, Seconds Out’ intends to offer a visual access into the Language of a boxing club. I consider this project as being in collaboration with the members of the Kelvin Amateur Boxing Club in Govanhill, Glasgow, whom kindly welcomed me.

BIKE FRAME BAG

The COVID-19 situation is a crisis and challenge effecting the whole of us. Trough this pandemic creatives had to find new ways of making, marketing and distributing products. These have to provide safety and purpose. Isabell put her own gtraduation collection on hold to help make medical scrubs during the lockdown period. This also led to exploring smaller projects like these commuter bags to provide a product with a deeper meaning and function. Sustainablitly is a key element in Isabells designs. The prototype bags were made out of left over calico, retiered yoga matt, retiered tent fabric and secondhand zips.

Fashion Collection: Sherpa and the Altidude

Looking at my previous research from a new angle led to a curiosity for the Sherpas in the Himalayas. I want to explore the impact of the commercialization of Mount Everest on the Sherpas, their families and their environment. Mass excursions force the mountain to drown in garbage and their locals to suffer from the impact on their water and ecosystem. But in the same moment there’s the need for heavy tourism to keep their economy going. These conditions put extra danger and responsibilities on the Sherpas. I want to express how a change in clothing and functional outerwear provides the Sherpas with more protection, but conversely increases accessibility to inexperienced or amateur mountaineers with life-saving clothing/ gear. This in turn feeds into the commercialization of high-altitude mountaineering. (Altidude aka. privileged adventure tourist driven by his amateur financial impetus to be one of the best mountaineers in a once in a life time excursion.)

Rust

When we take images using our phones we typically take them in bursts and select the best ones for social media. This is explored in Rust where taking a memorable day from her own phone she has used machine learning to generate artificial beach imagery to imitate existing memories which she has planted within the grid of a camera roll. As we scroll through our camera roll would we notice that false images had been placed amongst the burst? What else could be suggested to us?

Jamais Vu

In Jamais Vu images are generated based on social media status updates which others have publicly reposted and shared through memory apps. These images were then framed and staged within her own home as sentimental photographs would be. The frames are placed above artificial flowers next to a family clock which has stopped working. While the scene may seem ordinary in passing, on closer inspection may appear odd.

'Conversation' series

This series is a study of gestures taken from a set of interviews.

Hand Held

Looking through history, people have labelled different hand positions and movements, through symbolism within cultures and specific moments in time. Furthermore, how people have progressively shifted their hand behaviours through the age of personal devices. Our hands have adapted physically to its new demands. Taking selfies and holding a portable device in your hand has become the new norm and what body language culture has spawned from this era.

Hosting Focus Groups

Through hosting creative activity-based workshops, I have been collecting honest, first-hand experiences from young people in relation to their mental health. Using the information gathered from these activities and discussions I determined 3 key themes; medication, barriers to accessing support and stigma. Using these themes, I have been developing a series of works.

Medication

From discussions that took place during the focus groups, it became evident that young people consider mental health support and care to feel very clinical. In particular, participants commented on feeling ill-informed, anxious and confused about the use and role of medication on their treatment. This work is a visual interpretation of these discussions. Using machine learning to generate fictional medication names, I have been designing and assembling my own medication packaging. My intention is for this packaging to be convincing and mistaken for real prescription medications, thus highlighting how trivial and alien medication names, and the role of such medications, can feel to a young person.

Section into the Studios

A section view inside three of the six studios that The Waverley has to offer. Each studio space is a different size and provide a unique working opportunity based upon their positioning on the staircase.

Studio 1 - Single Desk

Studio 3 - Collab

Studio 3. This Collab studio offers enough space for dual working, primarily for desk-based work such as Interior or Graphic design. It is also the first studio to offer underfloor storage. Highlighted internally by a darker wood stain, the hatch maximises the stairs and uses the gap to integrate needed storage space.

Studio 6 - Textiles

Studio 6. An interior to accommodate Fashion & Textile designers. The space offers two desks to keep tasks separate as well as shelving for fabric rolls and the deepest underfloor storage for additional samples.

COUNSELLING ROOM VISUAL

This is one of the 7 counselling rooms. This one in particular is used for one-on-one counselling, but group discussion rooms are also available. The walls will be lime washed with a pink terracotta paint over to create a rough atmospheric feel to the wall. The floor is finished with a poured concrete. To juxtapose this hard floor will be a soft embedded playground rubber material acting as a rug beneath the two soft chairs.

COUNSELLING ROOMS SECTION

A section of the counselling rooms and waiting area. One of PLATFORM's main aims is to support and counsel people with mental health issues that have steamed or worsened by social media and the virtual world. Trained councillors will BE specifically trained within this field. Young people can get in contact with the PLATFORM themselves, referred to by a GP or encouraged to take a visit by a school. The acknowledgment that schools and GPs are struggling to help young people with such mental health issues and a need for a centre the specifies with the virtual world would not only help the young people but also lessen the demand on GPs and schools. “1 in 8 children have a diagnosable mental health disorder-that’s roughly 3 in every classroom.”

MANIFESTO

This poster visually symbolises my project's manifesto setting out my main aims and declaration for the year ahead. The internet chic and vaporwave aesthetic is something I want to capture throughout the entirety of my project. I want to explore the visual themes and trends of internet culture as well as the ethical and moral issues.

JOURNAL WORK

Exploring the social impact the digital world has on young people’s mental health, I hope to create a centre providing educational and counselling support. Seeking inspiration from online trends and issues such as surveillance and cancel culture. The centre remains unbiased and recognises the grey area that most of the internet lives in, the centre simply wished to educate people on issues so the users can use their technology more wisely and confidently.

RECEPTION

STORYTELLING DOME

In this space users can tell their stories and myths to an audience, the space is based on the idea of telling stories round a campfire. The dome structure bulges out of the building and its visible from the exterior. This allows users to see the sky and feel connected to their surrondings.

EXTERNAL VIEW

Formerly a primary school this building now houses the most cutting edge teenage hub in town. This iconic building in Polloshaws has been totally transformed and brought back to life to serve the younger generation once again.

GROUND FLOOR PLAN

This ground floor plan reveals the true size of the building which once served 500 pupils.

SECTION AA

This section AA cut unfolds the first steps of the users journey. Entering the space they will be greeted by natural light in the atrium which will navigate the users through a dynamic open plan space leading onto different floors to their desired activity.

RECEPTION

The atmosphere of the reception has been achieved by bringing the aspect of natural materials and light into the space, making a more welcoming and stylish environment for teenagers.

JUICE/ SANDWICH BAR

The design of this former assembly hall/dining space is inspired by the original features such as arch windows and red and white concrete grid ceiling. This space now serves the purpose for the users to meet new friends and enjoy a quick snack either to wait for their scheduled activity session or to just chill.

Residential Floor Plans

In this six storey building. The first five floors are dedicated to a range of sizes of flats to accommodate a variety of tenants.

The Corridors

A main design feature throughout the shared spaces in my design is curved walls. Curved walls are softer on the eye and the doorways located between the light voids and the external storage acts as a natural boundary between public and private space and giving them a feeling of “indoor streets”

The Light Voids

Natural light was an important factor when designing the layout of this building. I wanted to give more attention to spaces which are normally disregarded when designing residential buildings. Light voids down the centre of the building allows me to avoid having narrow dark corridors and gives the space more purpose rather than just being a pathway to get from A to B.

Materiality

Choosing materials which are sustainable, durable and affordable was important when designing this space. After researching lots of examples of previous social housing in Glasgow, a common theme was poor material choices which lead the buildings to fall into disrepair. The materials used throughout the building are easily maintained, within a reasonable budget as well as being environmentally friendly.

Mask Design in Peking Opera

The iconic masks of the Chinese Peking Opera use colour and pattern to imply characters' various personality traits, such as connotations of benevolence and malevolence. Using the same methodology, masks of well-known political figures have been approached and reconfigured to create new portrayals alongside characters from the novel Boule de Suif: Donald Trump, Kim Jong-Un, Vladimir Putin, Jacinda Ardern, Nicola Sturgeon, Mrs Loiseau, Boule de Suif and Thor.

These masks are depictions of famous political figures Donald Trump, Kim Jong-Un, Vladimir Putin, Jacinda Ardern, Nicola Sturgeon.

These masks are descriptions of the famous character Thor and the short story Boule de Suif (English: Butterball) by French writer Mopossant and the heroine Butterball.

Font Design of Grim Reaper Culture

Using dreams—specifically my own surrounding death—as a starting point, a font was based on the Grim Reaper and its surround cultures. Elements of the font are constructed from the death culture in various regions and cultures and their narratives about death.

Throughout 2019, millions of young people took to the streets to protest for their right to a future. No other year has seen such a rise in awareness on the topic of climate change, with the issue being brought loudly to the foreground by public demand. From February 2019 to early 2020, I documented the climate strikes in Glasgow, Edinburgh, London, and Italy, working closely with the organizations as a volunteer photographer. I focused on the stories as much as on the photography, aiming to crystalize my personal experience of the events by writing in the same way I was doing with the images by shooting. The result is a detailed, firsthand reportage where images and words are tightly connected, currently waiting for a space to be published.

FRIDAYS FOR FUTURE - Turin, October 2019

Die-in in Turin, Italy, October 2019. Young people lie on the ground of Via Roma, while a passerby cyclist stops among the bodies and tries to figure out what is happening. A young student walks back and forth in the street reading a Fridays For Future pamphlet with a megaphone. A mum is lying side by side with her two kids, the youngest being barely 3 years old. They check on their mum once every few seconds, then check the others. They’re excited, but they try to stay serious. ‘Like this?’, they ask. [Continues]

BLUE WAVE 2 / ARE WE NEXT? - Glasgow, March 2019 / February 2020

Left: On Leap Day 2020, XR Glasgow organized the secondo Blue Wave event of the city. Silent as the rising sea levels, step by step, centimeter by centimeter, just like water does, the Blue Brigade walked slowly from the bridge towards the people gathered in the Clyde Amphitheatre. Then proceeded leading the march through the city center of Glasgow, all the way until Buchanan Street steps. Right: Kelvingrove Museum, 3pm. Kids and parents together under the gigantic skeleton of Dippy the Dinosaur. Grandparents, too. To the sound of a violin, the signal, everybody lay on the floor. Under Dippy's skull, several kids turned around and around holding a sign reading: ‘We Are on the Midst of the Sixth Mass Extinction’. They were silent, the kids. Many were dressed as animals, or with animal masks. Some had dinosaur toys. They lay down for about twenty minutes, holding signs and banners on their chests. The banners were reading: ‘Are we next?’ [Published on The Guardian]

INTERNATIONAL REBELLION II - London, October 2019

“He had been playing since it all started when they began moving everyone out of the road. When the arrests began he didn't stop. One song after the other, he was accompanied to the sidewalk on one side just to turn back at the last moment and head to the opposite side, back and forth from where the people sitting on the road were waiting to be arrested. A bright sunny day in London, and in the middle of the road he was cheering everyone up, and making the police desperate because who wants a violin to stop playing? Back and forth, eyes fixed on something only he could see, and a rejuvenated smile every time he paused and people clapped for him beyond the police line. Making his difference, one tune at a time.” [Continues]

HOLYROOD REBEL CAMP - Edinburgh, June 2019

In June 2019, despite Scotland’s PM Nicola Sturgeon declaring the climate emergency, the Scottish Parliament set the country’s target date to become carbon neutral in 2045. According to the IPCC report, radical change is required before 2030 in order to avoid massive ecological disasters. I spent four days camping in front of the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh with Extinction Rebellion, documenting the actions aimed to raise awareness about the inadequate climate bill and the climate crisis.

The Empty Vessel

The Empty Vessel series, a collection of representational vessels, visualises and embodies the way grief takes from the individual and how we build around the space left behind. Clean white architectural forms become projected aspects of self, deemed appropriate for outside consumption. Inside an absence is present. The absence is the embodiment of grief, carried internally, its weight becomes perceptible in the physicality of the vessels. These corporeal forms become the embodiment of self creation in the face of the void. As empty vessels we traverse the spaces we occupy as representations of formed bodies. The ceramic forms relate to one another, standing alone but remaining interconnected in their expressions, just as grief isolates the individual whilst injecting them into a fundamental shared aspect of the human experience.

DIASPORA TYPEFACE


Diaspora is a display font exploring Italian immigration to Scotland between 1880 and 1920. A diaspora emerged to such an extent that the Scot-Italian became recognisable as a fully fledged persona encompassing characteristics of both cultures. Diaspora expresses these hybrid identities of Italians who immigrated to Scotland. This is translated by the addition of seven alternates for the letters A, E, M, N, T, U, V and W. To underline the concept of immigration by the means of type-design, the traditional and iconic aspects of lettering from both countries are emphasised. While having their own characteristics, Diaspora’s letters are designed on a single basis structure, helping to create a harmonious set. Each user can develop their own identity of the font using alternates. Diaspora is available on request through the GOODEGGS Type Foundry website: [www.goodeggstypefoundry.com](www.goodeggstypefoundry.com); or you can drop us an email to hello@goodeggstypefoundry.com

Media bias and Polarization. Part 2 Hong Kong book

Since March 2019 there have been a series of protests in Hong Kong. And media outlets provide very disparate narratives of their motivations. Because of these reports many people's opinion on these protests have been extremely polarized. The book collects news headlines from Pro-China media and Pro-Protester media throughout the protests offering readers an opportunity to make a comparison with different depictions of the same subject. At the same time, it highlights the influence of media and its role surrounding controversial events causing polarization.

Photo book (Material experiment)

This photo book is an experiment which trying to the possibility of physical books. Compare with digital reading, different books can provide readers with different touching feeling by their material. As the most important sensation of human, I think touching could be an interesting factor to be considered during the book design and helps the emotional expressing. I made my photos in this photo book. The photo that I selected was taken at the moment that I felt depressed and lonely. I hope the book itself can also show the fragile inside of me. I made plicated foil cover board as the book cover and use very fragile tissue paper inside. The contrast of touching is conspicuous which can prompt reading experience and expressing the emotion.

Photo book (Material experiment)

The project was an exploration of the possibility of physical books. Compared with digital reading, physical books provide readers with different material experience. Touch could be considered the most emotional sensation of a human being and I believe touching is an essential factor to be considered during book design to help the emotional expression. The photos selected were taken at moments I felt depressed and lonely and the book aims to convey a fragility inside of me on those occassions. The foil cover board cover and the use extremely fragile tissue paper gives a contrast when handling prompting an unusual reading experience and expressing further emotions.

Cyber Sexual Harassment

Cyber sexual harassment is a topic that is extremely common but generally ignored by the wider public. It may seem easy to dismiss as something relatively harmless and without consequence, but the feeling of disgust when experiencing harassment is indeed true. The four booklets draw on four real experiences of sexual harassment on the Internet. By using a distinct visual language to express the negative impact of harassment, the work reflects social realities and engages the audience through empathy.

The Shift in Perception of Women in Chinese TV Series

Given that Chinese television dramas reflect the collective consciousness and mainstream values of Chinese society. This project aims to explore how female characters are perceived and how they evolve under different social, cultural, economic and political norms. Particularly what is deeply entrenched and what is considered the female ideal.

The Dick Pic Project: Submission Cards

41% of British women aged 18-36 have received an unsolicited dick pic.1 Through open submissions over the past two years people have been sharing their stories, experiences, and images of cyber flashing, which have been retold and represented through explorations across different media. The project aims to create discourse around this rarely discussed yet prevalent issue, as well as providing a platform for victims to take ownership of their harassment. 1 Smith, M. (2018) YouGov: Four in ten millenials have been sent an unsolicited penis photo

The website functions as a platform to show all the images, stories and animations made throughout the project, whilst also having sections that provide practical information and direct victims to support services. The design of the main page bombards the audience, playing on ideas of consent. Although the content warning is clear, when exhibited at GSA in October 2019 the work still caused controversy and was censored by senior management. Surprisingly for an institution where one of the core values is ‘disruption’, the project has often faced knockback from staff, who have encouraged a more metaphorical approach. This has called into question how much influence the male gaze still has on today’s society – even within the art school.

Penis Etchings

At the start of the project the images were developed in different media, considering whether presentation of the work through traditional methods of making would elevate the subject matter. Throughout the project theories of art and pornography were examined and challenged, both from the artist herself and her wider audience. Etching and printing the unsolicited dick pics immortalised them from throwaway, transient images into works of art. The traditional and highbrow status of the medium instantly elevates the work. Working on small individual plates allowed multiple images to be printed alongside each other, alluding to a carefully curated photo frame.

Penis Stitches

The embroidered pieces draw instant connotations with feminine and tactile craft: the soft threads and muted colours encourage the viewer to touch the work, and create a tension between the message and the medium. Unsolicited dick pics are often sent via social media platforms such as Instagram and Snapchat, where they disappear once viewed. In contrast to this, the permanent and labour-intensive processes of etching and embroidery preserve what we can assume were intended as temporary records of sexual harassment.

Overview of Communicate

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a lifelong condition, which affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people, as well as how they experience the world around them. Meltdown and shutdown are intense emotional response to “triggers”, which could lead to long-term mental health. Communicare aims to provide an effective meltdown and shutdown prevention system for autistic children through modular 3-lead ECG monitoring and stress analysis. It connects the ECG wearables to the caregivers’ devices, allowing them to detect the upcoming meltdown and shutdown, in order to provide the right support at the right time.

Why 3-lead ECG?

Communicare consists of 3 ECG modules, worn on both right and left wrists, and the right hip. These ECG modules communicate through Bluetooth connection, forming a 3-lead ECG setup. This setup is used, because it increases the overall accuracy of the product. It enables in-depth cardiac analysis, since ECG features such as HRV and ectopic beat are linked to the autonomous nervous system, which is triggered by the flight or fight response. In other words, stress can affect our ECG activity.

Communicate App

The ECG modules then send the ECG data to the Communicare application, which comes in both desktop and mobile forms. The application allows the caregivers (mainly teachers and parents) to monitor the child’s current stress level. On the wristband itself, the LEDs are shown, acting as a visual cue for the passer-by (who does not have the Communicare app). Overall, the product enables the detection of upcoming meltdown and shutdown of an autistic child.

The straps

The silicone straps are interchangeable, so that the user can choose different strap designs to their liking. It is secured through the watch strap pin, which is shaped like a puzzle piece to symbolise and empower autism. –This aspect is based on the interviews conducted with the user group.

Autosteam

Perfectly textured milk at home, without the effort. AutoSteam achieves this with its preset wand positions that are designed to inject steam at the perfect position to create a vortex in the jug. This is essential in producing perfectly textured milk, with silky smooth microfoam, every time. The steaming time is controlled by a thermometer built-in the drip tray, so all the user needs to do is fill their chosen jug with milk to the indicated level and move the wand into one of the preset positions.

Product Overview

VENTRAL in use while cycling

VENTRAL facilitates the improvement of breathing pattern retraining during sport for increased cycling and rowing performance. Many cyclists and rowers do not breathe optimally during sport. By taking longer, deeper breaths the athlete’s performance can improve, however this can be hard to implement due to other skills in these sports requiring more focus and attention. VENTRAL gathers data from cadence sensors and delivers the athlete with a real time mindful breathing alert through vibrations to the chest. 
 The athlete synchronises their breathing to this vibration rhythm and performs better, with the potential to improve their power output by up to 3.2%.

The bigger picture kit consists of a river sampling kit that allows the user to take water samples from their local rivers; and a microplastics analysis kit that allows them to test this sample for plastics. Freshwater environments vary greatly ,due to human and non-human influence and because of this so too do the citizen access points, It was essential that the kit could be used safely resulting in the development of a bridge and bank deploying method. The materials were chosen using CES analysis thus minimise the negative social and environmental impact of the materials and manufacture, coupled with a renting business model, creates a sustainable product.

I started this project by looking into how societies and individuals interact and relate to rivers as an example of our unbalanced relationships with ecological systems. I choose this example due to the breadth and depth at which rivers have and do cross through societies. My research developed into gaining an understanding of how river health is defined, measured and the current threats to freshwater ecology. I found through a range of interviews, river visits and literature that comparison of rivers under analysis to rivers (or models) unaffected by human interaction is essential to understanding river health (Milne. Ian, SEPA, 2019, Karr, 1999). Also, that as other pollution levels are decreasing micro-plastics pollution has been increasing at an alarming rate within rivers having a deadly impact on the freshwater ecosystem of which the extent is not known.
