The Sighing of Hearts.
1 year, 10 months ago Comments Off on The Sighing of Hearts.

In intimate lonely moments, my heart gives a little sigh. The intensity of time; its relentless haste, and my heart, anxious to live and not miss, the full potential of a fully lived life, sighs at the potential in the moment that it can feel but not express.   Time moves us swiftly on a […]

  Here is my first video of the Dragon Creation Myth. This is a story I wrote and came up with for perfomance infront of 200-300 people at the Dartmoor Arts summer school festival. The story has evolved somewhat since then, and even since this last video. So if I find the time I may […]

1 year, 11 months ago Comments Off on Toilets of the Past, Present, and Future

Continuing on the commissioned hours of design research for the Cube Museum’s Toilet Expo I will explore toilets of the past, present, and future, with special emphasis on the future.

Transpersonal Design
2 years 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 […]
