My work is centred upon the importance of creativity and influence. I see designing as a way of life, transforming plain spaces into patterned and innovative solutions. Throughout my years in this practice, my imaginative and artistic skills have been enhanced significantly and this can be observed in my outcomes. I take inspiration from the figurative world around me and represent it in a way which encourages discussions about what people see and what they think they see. Creating different atmospheres and concepts has aided me in finding my passion for design and with this thirst I’m pursuing a career in hotel/set design.

My work can be characterised as a continual study of the horizontal and the vertical, of exterior and interior space. Layers, transitions, offsets and shifts define horizontal and vertical space and further represent the development of concepts in the design of space. My work is a means to this exploration of shapes, designs and emotions as definers of space. My inspiration for work come from everything I find interesting. I don’t feel I have a certain alignment. As such, I am a true eclectic - drawing inspiration from a range of disciplines.

At the beginning of this project we were given two words; mine was wide and narrow. So I decided to know what they really mean to me. I wrote down some words that means wide and narrow such as heavy, powerful, tight, huge, cave. What colours would be wide and narrow? I thought of white and purple. The reason I picked white is because it represents safe, clean,goodness, truthful,clean. Purple represents power, darkness, sadness, wealth and magic. So I looked into caves I thought caves can be wide and narrow at the same time.

I also looked into Henrique Oliveras work, which really inspired me and reminded me of my two words. So when you enter the space it will be tight, dark, and the colour is purple but from the outside it will be wide and the colour is white.

Upon beginning and continuing to work on this course, I have been led on a journey that has expanded my mind and has helped extend my knowledge of design. Heightening my skills at the subject through a series of discussions, sketching and model making; paired with using programmes such as CAD, In Design, Adobe Photoshop and more. I have become self sufficient and much more confident in my work. I liken my experience on this course and the growth that has resulted from it to that of a cloud: in the sense that I begun building on different subjects and different ideas that ended up merging together to become one.

Being a designer is about being experimental. Explore outside the box without the fear of being right or wrong. It’s about innovation, creativity and exploration. It can be a stressful process throughout, but it comes with a guarantee of a smooth ending. The idea of creating/ designing something out of the blue can be terrifying but it can also be rewarding. Ending with a shared view of Steve Jobs ‘Design is a fundamental soul of human-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of product or service’.

I am driven by the idea of conceptual art being used as a medium, manipulating and creating new experiences within space. The notion of a story being told through art excites me and allows me to free myself from constraints put in place by society. My inspiration is taken from nature, my own previous experiences and also my dreams, which taps into my subconscious and allows me to dig deeper into the human psyche. Creating experiences, moods and feelings is my passion and this is an essential skill I possess in order to pursue a career in set and production design.

My practice from three years is built by lots of experiments and working on various projects. Throughout my projects, I have developed my interests in colour theory, and how colours effect spatial explorations and human behaviours. My practice also depends on light and shadow explorations. My practice is mainly based on research and historical context.

During my practice I did various projects but my preferred choices are Dichotomy based on the theme of hide/reveal.

I developed computer aided skills as well as analytical, critical and subjective knowledge throughout my practice.

My research in this project helped me to create a sort of an illusion using light and shadow to describe my two words that I had been given, and with hard work and lots of research of an artists work. My final result I had lots of fun and experience and it was huge success for me.
