Project: Ornamental Hypertrophy: Contemporary Arts and Crafts in S.Lorenzo, Rome
Supervisors: Ulrika Karlsson, Marcelyn Gow, Daniel Norell, Jonah Fritzell
“The thesis is exploring the potential of the ornament conceived as inhabitable space, exuberant, blissful in opulence, flamboyant. The coexistence of opposite elements generates sensations that are overlapping, intertwining and blurring, generating a space that breathes, perspires and froths, in full bloom.”
