Back home, after four months of internship(s) in London.
The month at FIELD was a fantastic glimpse into the kitchen of a promising young design studio, and the subsequent three months at United Visual Artists were amazing. Although my expectations were high, working at UVA impressed me even more. The workspace itself provides a spatious and pleasant environment, but it was the people and the UVA design culture that I found the most fascinating. Studio-wide design discussions, exciting commissions, desks littered with prototypes, a drumkit in the basement and a red bearded pirate. But most of all it was the UVA’s combination of talented individuals that made this an inspiring couple of months.
I’ve spent part of my time at developing a single project which combined generative evolution, the esthethics of organic growth and digital processing, with the tangible and history of mural reliefs. A generated 3D model is being drilled out of solid rock as I’m typing this, the results of which I will post in a month or two.
The rest of my time I spent on doing research and developing concepts and sketches for a couple of other projects, getting my butt kicked by Ash and posting nonsense to the studio’s mailinglist.
