Real life has not left enough energy for art the past two months. But the drive is returning and engaging has brought back the desire to create. So I go back to design.
Design intrigues me because it is all about interpretation. A poetic problem of artful editing. Reducing the complexity of reality into elegant simplicity.
My latest experiment is simplifying the beautiful roadside chicory and adapting it to a bottle destined for olive oil. This has a Scandinavian sensibility and I like it. Despite stylizing, there is no question of identity and, yet, it has its own character.
