A set of ideas that loosely aligned might be described as the intersection of experimental preservation and material economies. Both terms are slight misnomers: experimental preservation implies work to maintain existing material, where I prefer to think of design as embedded in the materials and inherited conditions of history and which might embrace acts of copying, appropriation, and iteration. Material economies suggest work whose political meaning might become its dominant characteristic, where I try and balance social realities with disciplinary concerns and formal experimentation. This work is developed through design; through publication; and through any other media I can scrounge together. It has manifested in speculative design work, drawings, large scale installations, and a mock store.
