Teaching Philosophy

My philosophical interest in design is in alluding to the effects that time passing has on people and ideas. I use visual media to stimulate a similar awareness in others.
The combination of historical interpretation with modern production practices can serve as a vehicle by which we learn and communicate our basic human responsibilities. The process of design may teach us something about our responsibilities and actions toward one another.
