We live in a world with so many unwritten rules. There are certain ways we have to look, act and react to be seen as “socially acceptable”. Through this series, the meaning of distortion is explored in a physical, material, and functional way. First, jewelry designed to appear very delicate and beautiful on display, however when wore, is extremely uncomfortable and distorts the face for some of which society defines as “beautiful”.

Lastly, a corporate concrete cave meeting room that completely changes the atmosphere.
