Each project is an opportunity to redefine the possibilities of an interior space and create an experiment in living and working that can push the boundaries of any contemporary environment. The images I create work in tandem with the surface or objects that they cover — walls, ceramics, glassware, furniture and textiles for now — but it’s the possibilities of the materials and the stories you want to tell that lead me in new creative directions.
Harry Allen asked me to collaborate with him on the 2013 feature exhibition ‘Life on a String: 35 Centuries of the Glass Bead’ for the Corning Museum of Glass.
I created the whole graphic identity for the exhibit, from logo, signage to wallpaper and products. The emphasis was on the beads themselves, which provided great visual interest. Beads form the logo and are applied as patterns on the wall. Most of the graphics in the show, from the entry logo to the object description, are applied seamlessly as digital printed wallpaper.
