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 

Future Materials

In this last week newcastle has been hosting the annual ‘northen design festival’ which sees an array of design led talks and exhibitions around the city. One of these, was the “material exploration” in which future materials were exhibited. It was captivating to see the potential of some of these new materials but also the early application of these. although it may seem far from the topic of my exploration, i felt it was necessary to familiarise myself with the materials and process which will soon be the norm. Just like nomads new the land, material and craft around themselves, could this turn into a contemporary take of the nomads craft and culture form the use of our modern materials?
