A PUBLIC SPACE, 2017-2018

Freelance work for A Public Space, a quarterly literary magazine based in New York. The brief was to design the cover for the 26th issue based on the existing template. 

 

This issue of A Public Space explores the idea of how space is framed; how borders shape public, private and prevented spaces. 

RED FRAMES, 2016

An experimental series looking into constructing shifts in reality through photography. Created by projecting images into a similar environment to the originals and continually repeating the process to distort and confuse the image of the new space.

THE SCIENCE OF LOVE, 2014

The Science of Love explains the biology, psychology and philosophy of love. The book contains my own and others essays on the above subjects. A further three books The Writing of Love, The Technology of Love and The Politics of Love make the set Discussions of Love.

CHAMBER, 2016

Model mock-up of a planned installation at the Royal College of Art’s Hockney Gallery. The installation is based off my dissertation Girls on Film: Ariel, Lolita & the Sexualisation of Young Girls in Film. The installation focuses on the idea of young women being suspended in film/visual media and ideas and cultures projected onto them, which in turn, effect and warp the young women’s very existence.  

JM ORIGINALS, 2015-2016

JM Originals Cover Competition Winning Entries, 2015 - Generation by Paula McGrath

 

The cover for Generation focuses on ideas of time and space, and how the book characters lives interlink and the journeys they go on. The design shows a system created to map out the characters profiles with their time, place, relationships and reasons to travel onto compasses. 

THE WORLD IS IRRETRIEVABLY BROKEN, 2014

“The world is so big, so complicated, so replete with marvels and surprises that it takes years for most people to begin to notice that it is, also, irretrievably broken. We call this period of research “childhood.”  – Michael Chabon

 

Installation of 200 paper boxes presenting this idea of a broken world. I took the most basic of children’s toys, the alphabet block, using the familiar and corrupting it through content and scale so it becomes unfamiliar.
