I am currently a student of OCAD U in Digital Futures Program.
I have been a maker for as long as I could remember. Being able to take an idea and forming it in a way that people can enjoy has continuously intrigued me. As an interdisciplinary artist and a designer, I am enthusiastic about creating works that inspire people.
As an artist, subject that interest me is data. I find that data is the most interesting medium to pull out meaningful stories, and can create a large impact. One way that I present data is through the use of particles. Particles are a constant media in my best projects because not only can they create accurate depictions of the information proposed; but it also brings out my interests towards space. In my perspective, each particle is a star. Collections of these points create the world of data. It expands, morphs, and changes, just like our universe.
However, my ability and interest is not limited to creating particles. My creative approach—no matter the medium—is to find points of tension behind the idea I’ve been assigned or am interested in. I do several iterations on each point and usually end up refining the one I find most controversial. Ultimately, it’s about creating memorable experience.
