Exploring ideas around mindfulness I look for the hidden details in my immediate environment, seeing treasure in thrown away objects and vibrancy of colour in Manchester’s streets. I study the imperfect aesthetic of Manchester’s mills capturing the atmosphere with wearables. A trip to Barcelona inspired me to create another collection. Comparing the streets and graffiti to Manchester I reflect on the different characteristics found in Barcelona.
Through workshops I engage communities by reconnecting them with their surroundings, encouraging people to notice beauty in urban environments. Creating found-object pins I highlight the benefits of processes of mindfulness in a fast-paced society.
