From Consumption to Connection
MA Research

Throughout my MA, I became curious about how we can take control of our awareness in the attention economy. I explored how I could use the process and form of design to connect with my natural environment. 

We instinctively know that nature is good for us, and there are substantial studies to support this. Yet, we spend more time indoors than ever before, surrounded by technology designed to keep us there. How can the slow, cyclical world of nature captivate our curiosity? Could graphic communication design be used to stimulate engagement with local ecologies?
