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

Sandy & Kirsty & Noah - Dubia

Today saw the first of many interviews revolving around the home environment for those who are frequently on the move. This first interview, came more as a sleepy chit chat as my brother and his family got ready for bed… in Dubai. 

The back story - Sandy, Kirsty and Noah moved over to Dubai a couple of years ago and have moved apartments twice in there time there. In addition to the flat jumping, they find themselves in an entirely new environment - from Scottish showers to desert dust.

Our conversation uncovered many little hidden stories: from the things they took with them when they first set off, defining what a home was, creating new memories whilst having time to reminisce  about old ones and having a place where you can be yourself.  

on reflection of this it put emphasis on the importance of the small nicknacks around the house and less about the larger pieces:  “ the home is made of 1000 of interactions so to have 1 product and say this is home over simplifies it” - Sandy
