Finding and inspiring joy in design should be a paramount concern. A huge part of what drives my practice is the necessity of aesthetic experiences in quotidian life. We’ve gotten to this place as a society where most encounters with obviously designed and aesthetic objects are with advertisements. We’ve seemed to have forgotten that finding joy in things that are unique or beautiful for the sake of simply being enjoyed should be a common experience. And it definitely goes beyond just murals or artwork. This is definitely idealistic thinking. But perhaps it could be good practice to think of how we will be safe and happy in a space first and foremost, and then making the numbers the work to get as close to the ideal we envision as possible.
