3 years, 6 months ago Comments Off on 22 Projects shaping the Future of Sanitation and Toilets

This video is a good intro to this list of Future Toilets. The developing countries need solutions for their massive sanitation issues. Like the guy says “the problem is not just technological, it is cultural.” Resolving the sanitation problems of developing countries is the main driver in toilet R&D driving the technology behind the toilets […]

3 years, 6 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. I have to look globally at different artistic visions, projects, and products. I think especially important is to look from the point of view the […]

Hi Guys, so the story with this project is that some friends visited me in Eindhoven while I was presenting the graduation, and we planned to meet up again in London to go to Dialogues in the Dark together. http://www.dialogue-in-the-dark.com (Just to clarify: the one in London was focused around a dining experience) However when it got closer […]

As part of an on-going international residency I will do with Cube Museum starting in May 2017, I have been commissioned to produce some design research results on the up-coming Toilet expo for the Cube Museum: http://www.cubedesignmuseum.nl/nl/activiteiten/design-van-het-kleinste-kamertje As always I come at the assignment from my transpersonal design approach, and immediately I find myself fascinated by the dynamic […]

Spirit-Lines: Transpersonal Design
3 years, 7 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 […]

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 […]

http://www.transartists.org/map 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, 7 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 […]

Plug-In, Opt-Out, or Free-Flow
3 years, 9 months ago Comments Off on Plug-In, Opt-Out, or Free-Flow

  So I am standing on the edge of the precipice of time. I just graduated and I find myself distracted and preoccupied with “my life” and its future. I say “my life” in quotations, because, obviously, direct experience of the self as pure awareness shows us there is no person, and life lives itself […]
