The Book That Grew

A book with 10 tangible lessons and 10 pieces of practical advice designed to help maximize sustainability. These 10 steps enable farmers to achieve a 'perfect' 10 rotations of grass grazing per year, and produce 10 tons of grass per hectare, a truly powerful number that will massively improve the sustainability of even the most efficient farm. A book grown entirely from the very grass that Irish farmers nurture - with each page, each word, and each diagram shaped by real grass roots as they grew.

Heart Maze

This is an art installation in an art workshop, a maze installation related to heart. It ostensibly looks like an exhibition for a charity jewelry event, with a contrasting black and red design that takes full advantage of the visual impact of mirrored surfaces and colored transparent acrylic. But in reality, it was a carefully curated proposal. It means that love is like walking in a maze, looking for something, you need to find the right person at the right time and find the right route (answer) to reach the final exit. And there is only one exit-lover.

Infinity

Wooden wall panels come alive and wander off around the interior space. Precise geometrical joints create a fluid continuous form out of numerous pieces of pressed bent wood. The entire element, made of only two different basic shapes attached together multiple times in several orientations, comes together to create an organic like natural fluid line. Suspended from the ceiling using 1 mm thin metal wires, the wooden surface floats as far as 10.5 meters away from the wall.

Flow With The Sprit Of Water

Often community environments are polluted by the inter- and intra-personal dissonances of their inhabitants which results in visible and invisible chaos in the surroundings. The unconscious effect of this disorder is that inhabitants regress into restlessness. This habitual and cyclical agitation influences the body, mind, and spirit. The sculptures guide, groom, purify, and strengthen the positive "chi" of a space, focusing on pleasant and peaceful outcomes. With a subtle shift in their environment, the public is guided towards a balance between their inner and external realities.

Superegg

Superegg represents the rapid multiplying of single use coffee capsules, which symbolises human convenience and its impact on the environment. Appearing levitated above ground, the textured geometric superegg shape, as documented by mathematician Gabriel Lame, is dotted with random discarded coffee capsules arranged into perfect lines. The visceral experience engages the viewer from all angles and distances. Over 3000 capsules were collected via a call to action on social media and the local community. Superegg allows the viewer to peruse waste and encourages new recycling habits.

Bubble Forest

"Bubble Forest" is a public sculpture made of acid resistant stainless steel. The material has the property of reflecting both natural and artificial light. During the night, it is illuminated with programmable RGB LED lamps. It was created as a reflection on the ability of plants to produce oxygen. The title forest consists of 18 steel stems/trunks ending with crowns in the form of spherical constructions representing a single air bubble. “Bubble Forest” refers to the terrestrial flora as well as to that known from the bottom of lakes, seas and oceans.
