Hellicar&Lewis

During my Master’s I had the luck to have a one-year mentorship/tutoring program with Pete and Joel from Hellicar&Lewis. Their work really push the boundaries of technology in a creative way, focusing on being in the moment and creating memories you will cherish and remember. I’ve also participated in paper prototyping workshops held by Pete…

Neuromancer: book cover re-design

Neuromancer book cover re-design, as part of a look back on the projects I’ve done this year so far, during and after the MA.  On my trip to London last year, I picked up a copy of Some thoughts on the Common Toad, by George Orwell. The cover was beautiful and I decided to bring…

Exhibition: setup

Experiments
The end of year show was around the corner. I finalized the project, but now needed to work with the space where the installation would be set up. I got the area next to the gallery, overlooking the cafeteria at Khio. The advantage of that spot was the space (huge), and having electric plugs near…

Exam

Experiments
I prepared for the final exam by setting up two spaces where I would present my project to the censors:  the gallery and a dark room where a demo of Stardust could be experienced by them. At this point in my process, Stardust was almost finished, and I needed to tweak a couple of things,…

Through the looking glass: book design

Book design for my MA dissertation: Through the Looking Glass: creating enchanting experiences through design and emergent technology. I wanted to create a beautiful object you could hold in your hands, and to have an enchanting experience at the turn of the page in each chapter. I designed the book inside and out, as well…

Through the looking glass: layout design process

Experiments
  The next stage after finishing writing my MA dissertation, was to think about the layout and format. I had thought about how I wanted it to be before writing began, and I even sketched out my ideas and was exploring papers and of course, drooling at typography that I could use. But when the…

Through the looking glass: writing

Experiments
I wrote about my journey in the MA, as well as my pilot projects and final piece, for my MA dissertation. I decided to call it “Through the looking glass: creating enchanting experiences through design and emergent technology”. The reason I used “Through the Looking Glass” in the title is because through reflecting on what…
