Spirit-Lines: Transpersonal Design
3 years, 9 months ago Comments Off on Spirit-Lines: Transpersonal Design

I first came across the concept of spirit-lines during a shamanic ceremony; where the magic circle was broken to leave a gap in it. The purpose of this gap: the “spirit line” is meant to leave a room for the spirit to move freely as it wills. It resonated deeply. I looked into it deeper […]

3 years, 10 months ago Comments Off on A Design Masters: RCA or Scholarship?

So this is more of a personal research post than anything. I will continue to update it as I make research into funding a Masters and finding fully-funded Masters. Last year I was accepted into the Innovation Design Engineering (IDE) program at the RCA London. It is a really prestigious double masters: an MA from […]

Residencies & International Collaborations
3 years, 10 months ago Comments Off on Residencies & International Collaborations This is a Gem. This website lists a lot of residency institutions by geographic location on a map! Then each individual residency host has their own page with all the necessary information: location, duration, content, and then crucially if the host pays for the residency, or the artist has to pay for the residency. […]

Transpersonal Design
3 years, 10 months ago Comments Off on Transpersonal Design

I want to share my transpersonal approach to design with you. It’s an approach that has crystallized out of my continued design practice and out of a common thread of thought and feeling that is present in all of my most sincere and self-initiated projects. My dissertation: “Making and the Transpersonal Future” sets the scene. Within the […]

In my presence, is the presence. Only through my presence, can I come to the presence. For my presence, free from the ideas of “I” and “my”, is pure presence. Beyond all forms, colours, feelings, Beyond all transient phenomena, the sense, existential, THAT I AM: the very fact of BEING, the permanence of PRESENCE, is the only […]

No seperate […]

An important part of my process now is acknowledging how far I have come and opening up and sharing about it. It is a fascinating truth that personal insights have at their core a kind of […]
