I received my MFA this spring from Art Center College of Design’s Media Design Practices program. Before graduate school I worked on green infrastructure (green roofs, street-level rain capture), studied human geography at Dartmouth, and spent 18 years in rural Vermont.
Like other forms of media, products inform how we construct our identities, aspirations, taste, values, and understandings of our world. Because this is especially true during childhood, the design language of toys bears extra scrutiny. This collection of toy combs comes from the late eighties and nineties.
