A new body of work developed while investigating divination tools and practices, such as the tarot. I record the symbols and words that surface in my sketchbook. The four elements of air, earth, fire, water, and four directional coordinates of north, south, east, west are a framework for this research into the inner self and inform new aesthetic decisions. S (2) assembles found objects into the form of an arrow pointing south and is wrapped in bright orange textiles symbolizing the element of fire.

The consumer outlook in a Fast Fashion era requires re-training. ANYBAG and Made by Alex focus their storytelling on connecting consumer perceptions of designed objects to the systems that produce them. Creating durable, useful, and thoughtful goods whose system of production is the design. Using what’s around us and make something from nothing.

DEADSTOCK" is a collection of works which showcases the creative possibilities of re-purposing discarded materials. These artworks feature a range of pieces, including collages, sculptures, and fashion designs, all incorporating dead stock materials. The use of these materials adds a unique texture and character to each piece. In these pieces we gym socks, t shirts spray paint gesso and coffee grounds.

The Electric Cord bag, made from a 25 foot standard outdoor orange electric cord, playfully questions what our everyday items are made from.
Can we take something mundane and reimagine it into something new?  Can a bag be an electric cord? Can an electric cord also be a bag? How far can this be pushed until one supersedes the other? Each bag is handmade through a painstaking process of glueing, while using a series of molds to get the correct shape. The goal is to make a bag without cutting or ruining the cord itself as it is still able to be plugged in and used.
