In the open canvas of this portfolio, where my ideas spread wide, the concept of "Collection" manifestly reveals itself. "Collection" is, concretely, a variety of work created during my time at the Academy. And yet, it is also something which surpasses the tangible form. It is a collection of hours spent studying, appreciating and pursuing knowledge. Its inspiration is the building of creative works, each project a window into my state as a designer. Taken together, these projects breathe life into a story that is the greater whole of whoI am. While reading, I invite you to consider each project as both a self-contained work and as part of a greater "Collection."
