Particular Proceedings is the outcome of an ongoing quest to understand the origins and motivations of my creative process as a designer.
By continuously pairing early influences and experiences — such as architecture and woodworking — with recurring interests, I gather a view of my methods and, with that, a reframing of my affinity for designing: an intimate relation between material, maker, and content, with meaning often arising out of that process.
In this thesis, I demonstrate, through projects, conversations, and essays, how this relation operates in different scenarios and through different lenses of inquiry. I alternate perspectives, repurpose ordinary materials, and reshape actions between myself and different tools and techniques by crafting graphic forms: posters, typography, books, videos, and objects.
