Everyday existence is anything but mundane. As ordinary as they may appear, our routines, rituals and day-to-day activities are complicated systems of interconnected actions, objects and intentions – and they are rich with opportunities for improvement, in terms of efficiency, interest and beauty. My work focuses on elevating the everyday, and on restoring the delight that comes from taking time out of the day to dwell, even momentarily, on the details that have the capacity to inspire.
