Sustainability ethos in my practice
As an Art Director and Set Designer I have been engaged in sustainable design since my training as a Technical Artists for Film and TV. I was hugely shocked by the waste and toxic materials used within these industries. With the experience I have gained over the last 17years I have managed to find more sustainable solutions without an impact on the final product.
I always like to discuss the use of environmentally friendly materials and practices with my clients to see if they are happy for the design and budgets to evolve with this concept in mind.
I feel obliged to make responsible choices in my designs and incorporate the narrative of sustainability, either through leadership, the installations commissioned or simply through the materials used.
