I’m a multidisciplinary designer and media artist with experience in illustration, information experience and interior design. I hold a MA in information experience design from the Royal College of Art in London and have obtained BA (Hons) with distinction in interior design from Glasgow School of Art.
My work provokes discussion and engages people in a playful manner through installations, community engagement, workshops, experiences and design for the more-than-human bodies and beings.
My work looks into ways of tackling omnipresent in-visible problems such as light and carbon pollution. With the project In-visible Moth Spells, I enabled the audience to experience the world through the eyes of a moth whilst exposing the constraints of human vision.
My work addresses urgent global problems such as mass extinction, our understanding of the use of technology and its effects onour health and nature. My design process is guided by research, experimentation and questioning the status quo. I utilise speculative and critical design processes to bridge the gap between broad disciplines such as science, art and design.
I use space, mixed media, illustrations, photography, video, interviews, design research, social experiments, workshops and material exploration as a part of my research process that guides and evolves my practice. I currently live and work between Tallinn and London.
