Before I went into OCADU, I was ready to pursue a career as an ‘artist’ or professional interventionist (through art). I feel like I was in the right path.
Now that I’m studying Industrial Design, I can totally feel two sides of myself clashing. People will always say, ‘OH, FOR SURE YOU CAN PUT THOSE TWO THINGS TOGETHER AND IT WILL WORK’. But you neglect either of them while in school. It’s very rare that you find a project that can nurture both of those fires.
It’s hard, and I can feel parts of me die off a little. But I can feel a comeback soon.
