If something starts out as nonsense, you can be sure its original.
Its very easy to make more than nothing,
So I try to make less than everything.
I look for things that make me explore, understand, think and do differently.
I am hard-working, enthusiastic and comfortable working in a group as well as individually.
I see design as a space where people can interact and collaborate to create and develop beautiful ideas, concepts and innovations.
I believe that great work comes from enthusiasm, hard work, time, curiosity to explore and the willingness to observe, listen and learn from different perspectives.
I think design has an immense potential for collaboration amongst people from different backgrounds and across platforms to build the future, together.
I like open boxes, open spaces, open heads, lollipops and Sundays.
I love the idea of creating a community space to educate people about renewable and sustainable energy! We definitely need more collaborative spaces like this to educate people on sustainable living. I can see this model working in closed housing communities/community centres across the world.
Just a thought - What if you have interactive games/installations that reinforce ideas and behaviour around using and creating renewable energy by creating collaborative 'Play spaces' in your eco-park... Its a great way for families and communities to adopt positive behaviour towards sustainable living. eg: 1. you could have a floor game with piezoelectric generators installed and a sound/light feedback to show how much energy is created. Alternatively - (like your see-saw powered fountain) the energy generated could power lights/sound that feed back into the game making it self sustainable. http://www.playgroundmarkingsdirect.co.uk/playground-markings/games/ http://www.sustainabledanceclub.com/products/sustainable_dance_floor/ 2. You could have a segregated paper toss bin game where the amount of trash thrown in the bin gives you a quantitative feedback - like 5 kilos of newspaper = 25 trees (random numbers not based on research, using it as an example) I don't really know how financially sustainable it is, but just an idea :) Would be happy to talk further and bounce around ideas if you're interested...
