From my artist statement, "Organic synthesis, my term for my senior thesis, investigates the blending of natural qualities or natural principles to create more organic, sincere design in contrast to slick, modern graphics. Using the symbol of dirt or grunge, or principles like radial symmetry and biomimicry, organic synthesis softens the hard-edge, mechanically structured anatomy of contemporary graphic design and attempts to create design that feels part of the viewer's real habitat rather than the digital realm."
This was a massive project and one that I plan to continue as a personal project. I've only just begun to scratch the surface in areas such as biomimicry applied to graphic design and so I am anxious to continue my research. Stay tuned to this blog for future work in organic synthesis.
