As an eco-scenographer and collaborator I look for imaginative ways to open up conversations, bringing a new vitality to internationally relevant ecological and social themes. The landscape is changing, grassroots actions are springing up, and I see myself as part of this zeitgeist. My eco-design remit is to repurpose objects, use surplus materials, and to commit to a closed-loop design process (in which all components are considered in a cyclical manner, with their afterlife as important as their current use).”
