Kudi — CV
Born 1993, London, UK
Psychology Bsc and MA in Social and Cognitive Psychology with a Major in Social Design, with 3+ years of experience in architecture and technology design (Foster and Partner, Allies and Morrision, Bloomberg and British Land) facilitating and managing infrastructure and design teams.
My work is focused around the fine arts, while looking into the anthropomorphization of the natural world as a visceral lens for exploring the human condition, crafting metaphors for human existence and past experience. My work questions the stasis of social dynamics and asks the viewer to examine their place within an ever-shifting ecosystem. I aim to communicate visual ideas through sculpture.
Ultimately the aim of my work, is to make my audience understand the association between the designed object and our psychological perception of social classes and racial structures that these objects pertain to. With the progression of starting my dialogue with the smaller objects then naturally scaling up that conversation to larger infrastructural objects of design.
