Let's Be Kids Again! is a continued exploration of the human experience and childhood nostalgia. .  

 

This interactive installation is accompanied by five riso printed illustrations based on scenarios and quirky situations that remind most people of their childhood; putting them back into the shoes of their past selves. This work encourages the audience to participate and truly immerse themselves into a childlike mindset by drawing on the cardboard structure and on the work itself. This was inspired by how i used to trash the walls of my home with crayola and faber castell markers when my mom wasn’t looking.

 

At most exhibitions, the audience often approaches a piece of work with caution, observing it from afar. I wanted to create design that wasn't fragile or precious, but something that could not possibly exist without the people I created it for.
