As a furniture designer, my process involves finding and re-creating artistic value in natural and historical detritus. I aim to question what we are capable of re-building with the neglected material, traditional, and natural resources and consider our connection to the past. My designs often emerge from materials that are emblematic of a unique resilience to disappearance because of their emotional or historical charge, such as my neighbor’s 100-year-old olive tree, interior objects from used aircrafts from the 60s, and mid-century aerospace pieces collected from surplus places around Burbank in California. In most of my works, which take the final form of lighting units, my goal is to practice a particular type of postmodern montage that would be sharply evocative of the reciprocal relationship between nature and history to illuminate the present.
