The background - I wanted to investigate the rituals of social behavior to create a marketable luxury product or range of products. I explored the possibility of instantaneous performance as a medium and looked into new ways that it could aid in product experience. Attempting to define the engagement users had with products, and discovering the intuitive properties that materials have on individuals. Followed by a strong design direction that encourages emotive response and user participation. The idea - People have an intimate knowledge of materials and have complex value systems that inform their decision making process. I felt that performance could tap into this system and imbue the magic of product creation and inform permanent design practice. The outcome - A product that holds a personal narrative, created from luxury materials and performance. Crossroads – the collection, and a process of creating products thatunderstand the things that mean things to people.
