As I continue to develop as a designer, what is of particular interest to me is where the 2D and 3D overlap and interact. I would like to design artefacts that make the virtual tangible and leverage the assets of physical and digital artefacts which is why I am applying to your program.
While in graduate school, I would like to investigate creating objects that take advantage of all that the best of the 2D world has to offer without forsaking usability and accessibility, for our older citizens in particular. There are several questions that I want to explore and answer during my graduate study: Can artefacts coupled with Quantified Self tech help us live healthier lives? What should a child’s first exposure to technology look like and how should it stimulate their brain? How do we create a public transit experience that’s clean, dense, yet not claustrophobic? As consumer technology continues to become more advanced, how do we ensure its accessibility? How can we reinvent the air travel experience so that we save fuel, space, and improve the passenger experience?
If accepted into the graduate programme, I will continue to focus on these areas and will use the opportunity to explore them more deeply, creating work that also elevates the travel experience and that of the daily life in dense urban environments as well as that of seniors.
