The Imaginary Project

The Imaginary Project

The Imaginary Project is all about developing the creative process.

It began with the creating of a fictional character.
From the idea of an inside vs. an outside, things hidden within something else, the figure of a transvestite emerged.

The second phase of the design process was to imagine a place and context for this character. My transvestite lives in the Nevada desert.
In this milieu I created a house.
A refuge, a simple shelter that provides the necessities. The house is constructed of layers of vaguely tilted walls, that gives protection from sun heat and insight.

The last part of the project was to create a piece of furniture inspired by the person and its home.
The furniture from this project participaded at the Stockholm furniture fair, spring 2009.

Studio project.
Autumn 2008.
