'Ingrid the Shapeshifter' for Light Grey Art Lab’s Rolemodels Exhibition.
"All geometric forms answer to the command and 3-dimensional prowess of young Ingrid. Able to manipulate any triangular prism, cuboid, or mind-bendingly complex -Hedron, evildoers of the highest degree shall cower from her mastery over all shapekind. Despite her geometrical genius, Ingrid has been known to fail at all other kinds of math."
This piece will appear alongside many other magnificent heroes and evildoers on October 25th to November 30th. It is also part of a limited edition RPG card deck game designed by LGAL: The Battle for Vyk’Tornaahl. Check out all the other amazing character designs in the show here!
Thanks again to Light Grey Art Lab for letting me nerd out on this one!

Slate presents an amazing, interactive digital version of Olaus Magnus’ 1539 Carta Marina, a chart that portrays the sea as teeming with monsters…
When the chart was made, in the early years of the Age of Exploration, there was a lingering belief in the existence of griffins, unicorns, dragons, the phoenix, the monstrous races, and a host of other unnatural creatures. Modern science was in its infancy. Although adherents to the direct observation of nature would soon challenge hearsay and tradition and begin to classify animal life, at the time the medieval imagination was still free to shape its own forms of the natural world. The chart’s giant lobster gripping a swimmer in its claws, a monster being mistaken for an island, and a mast-high serpent devouring sailors would have represented actual fears of the unknown deep.
Those and Olaus’ other fanciful sea beasts are not mere decorations to fill empty spaces. Nor are they only visual metaphors for dangers lurking in the sea. Intended as representations of actual marine life, they are identified in the map’s key.
Click through to Slate to explore the stories of each creature, and read more on the chart’s origins…
my semester’s design project
A dynamic “second skin” which articulates a wearer’s need for personal space by responding to and exaggerating his body language. The piece changes position depending on the movement the wearer makes with each arm.
We used a combination of digital fabrication techniques and handcrafting to get this result.
"For the last 13 years Japanese photographer Miyoko Ihara has been taking pictures of her grandma, Misao, to commemorate her life. 9 years ago, 88-year-old Misao found a stray odd-eyed cat in her shed: she called it Fukumaru, hoping that “the god of fuku (good fortune) would come and everything will be smoothed over like maru (circle).” Miyoko has been photographing their beautiful friendship and the way they go about their daily routine ever since.”
