About the Book
My thesis project presents a constellation of work that surrounds the idea of presentness. What is it to be present in the world? How can an object be designed to facilitate and enhance presentness in the user? How can an experience be designed that occupies a space of becoming, a moment in time that an be experienced and taken out into the world?
The object as event is an experience where the object spills outside of its physical dimensions, into a 4th axis of movement. I design and create objects that ask the user to participate in their completion as experiences. This is the experiencing of presentness or activated awareness that can be used as a certain practice for taking out into the world around you. It is to enable a detour into an alternative mode of existence or perception. It is a space of curiosity and inquiry with the world.
