Uni Blog 2018

Hello, so this is a little glimpse into the thoughts and things around my final major project from university (over a year ago). The aim of the blog was explore the topic of atmosphere and how objects within the home can influence it. Feels like a million years ago I started this but anyway, hope you enjoy 

Nomad Craft

After researching the heritage and culture of many nomad tribes, what they all have in common was there own craft which they brought with them, completely depended and the resources around them and the tools they had. One of these ingenious items is a waterproof garment from intuits made from seal and whale intestines to create a waterproof yet air-permitting garment. it was so thin the garments was see-through. So a wee thought, could you apply that same principle to our products/ furniture but with our won craft of our own land? what if you had a frame which you could then interchange crafted pieces? or expanding on this more broadly, could you look at the relationship of the nomads with modern society and how they are slowly disappearing, creating products which show this in a tangible form - craft vs technology?
