The Major Projects Division is where future products go to become the new now. It is stories on some of the completed projects, and updates on the ongoing ones. This page is in a constant state of revision, so sometimes it will have a lot of information, and sometimes it will have very little.
My master's degree
I'm currently working on a master's degree at the University of Alberta. forces have conspired over the last two years to really slow down the process, but it's coming along.
Status: Ongoing ( for too long)
The Glyph Project
It started with a small challenge I had only an hour to solve; make a pendant for someone visually impaired. Originally incarnated as a precursor to braille known as sonography. It soon became braille, but that wasn't correct either. I wanted it to have a sound. Eventually, the notation was modified to work for morse code, giving each pendant not only a distinct look, but also a theoretical sound secretly encased in each Glyph symbol.
Key Terms: Hypermodern,
First Realized: Pendant "Zero" (2014)
Associated designs: Glyph Pendant, Sol Earrings, Belt Buckle.
Status: Permanent Ongoing
The Sidereus Project
[patience please. this section is still under construction]
The Nexus Project:
I have always acknowledged that any given pair of people are as alike as they are different. This is one of many reasons why good design is important in this world. In part, design is about enabling people to do things for themselves, It is also why I am an advocate for education. Nexus will be as much an experience as it is a product, so we can all learn together.
The parts and tools needed for the nexus project are too small for local manufacturers to tackle, so this project has been delayed until I can find someone with a small enough laser cutter.
Key terms: modular, customization, stackable.
First Realized: (coming soon)
Currently associated designs: (coming soon)
Status: Prototyping (delayed)
