Objects have the ability to influence our state of mind and can have a direct impact on our environment and how we feel within it.
My current work is titled PETOLOGY.
Petology uses pets as a metaphor for emotional wellbeing. It taps into the emotional connection we feel toward pets and applies it to create objects with soul, personality, and a sense of companionship- objects that enhance your life because of how they make you feel.
