As a visual and kinesthetic learner I draw my inspirations from the space around me. Not just the objects in space but the space itself, location, climate, emotional atmosphere, and the discovery and navigation of said space. I have to see and touch space to really know it. My personal ties to a space also play a factor in my creative process, i have called and continue to call many spaces “home”. Home is not just a concept of place but a place in (a) space, we make a home, return home, keep home, go home, stay home…the list is endless. Home is where the heart is. In saying that i feel i have left my heart in many a home.
My concept proposal for the “space” project is simply this. I wish to take what I NEED and, for the time being temporarily, simplify my life style. simplify not only my possessions but the space wich I inhabit. My living space will be made simpler. I use the term nomadic to describe this because the definition of a nomad is; any of a people having no permanent home, but moving about constantly, as in search for pasture. A wonderer. I am going to build a portable, nomadic style home for myself and live simply and ne.
I have a personal desire and urge to pursue a nomadic life. I think this came from my early life, moving and changing my life space.
