2050 is a speculative design project that proposes a domestic utopia forever slipping just over the horizon. For 2050 I combine specialized craft training with technical insights from commercial ceramics manufacturing in an effort to engage seemingly disparate techniques and notions of value. 2050 acknowledges the friction between the modernist ethos of design as a mechanism to improve ones life, and the pragmatic reality that design is often simply a form of entertainment. None of this will change your life, but perhaps it could.
