My design practice explores the idea of craft in shoe making, led by sustainable methodologies when exploring materiality and construction. Often informed by advanced industrial processes, the technological aspect purposely may not be apparent as I seek to employ crude, domestic, interpretations of the systems I am inspired by.
This approach is influenced by my own thoughts on: “The void capitalism left behind...” Which often navigates the social, geographic and political dynamics as it relates to my perceived social class, ethnicity and lack of access. In the attempt to develop artefacts which best serve communal practices or individual events.
I believe my aesthetic to be both performative and esoteric within the context of how my work responds to the lived experience.
