An intriguing quality of interior design is its ability to speak to time, to reflect and to layer. The flux of life and living. Bringing forth physical memories of the past, juxtaposing those of today and subsequently inspiring the future. A timeline of emotion and nostalgia.
This can be viewed as story telling. A chronological documentation of humanity, families forgotten and families built. A registrar’s book of who we are.
As a designer and creator this is my interest, what inspires my doing, the movement of time and its captives. My interest lies within the depiction of time and how we live, who we are as we build forward. The making of the past inspires our future as we desperately cling to our collective identities. Our stories are displaced upon the objects we bring forward, somehow softening the coming unknown, or at least our hope
It is my firm belief that the built environment can be the catalyst for change. Our living spaces are vessels of memories and tools of time that inform who we are and who we can be. They can be seen as compasses. Birthers to our futures.
The interior as time line is one that we all experience, both in how we live and the memories we hold. Our personal histories inform our current choices and inform too the makers mark. This is what writes the stories of how we live and create. The past penning the future. After all, nothing comes from a vacuum. Look around, you’ll see what I mean. What are you wearing and why?
This is an aspect that informs my intentions, history, not as pure document but as inspiration for the future. It is the old that gives weight, that informs the now and inspires the future, gives us hope.
