Stacked egg crates undulate in and out of a steep slope, securing themselves into the hillside like roots. The changing forms provide points at which the slope's gravity and pull pauses. At these points, one is cradled into the hillside and can begin to notice intricacies in the surrounding nature. The egg crates are made from second-generation pulp and overtime will dissolve into the hillside.

To bring attention and impact to Lululemon's Austin store front for SXSW 2016, I created a facade of bold and colorful geometric shapes. Each shape is filled with strips of vinyl, mylar, and rope, creating a surface of texture and movement.
Hem, meaning home in Swedish, embodies the idea of playful simplicity. Hem utilizes the capabilities of industrial wool felt with functional yet playful products for the home. Each product is the result of an exploration of the inherent qualities of felt: folding, gathering, and linking a 2 dimensional material to create a 3 dimensional form. The products range from children's play furniture to small bags and accessories for the home.
