These are some preliminary sketches for my first semester project. I’m an MFA candidate at CCAD. Don’t steal my ideas or I will hunt you down while you sleep.
In response to the question below: Olafur Eliasson is a big influence on me. His exhibit Take Your Time at MCA Chicago fundamentally transformed the way I thought about art. James Turrell, Yayoi Kusama, and Bernhard Leitner have also made important works–ones that make people feel something. I’m also influenced by films such as Beyond the Black Rainbow, a weird Canadian psychological thriller, and film noir.
Right now I’m reading Phenomenal: California Light, Space Surface (Edited by Robin Clark), Personal Space: The Behavioral Basis of Design by Robert Sommer, and too many books on the psychology of color and light.
