Create an interactive informational experience. Go wild.
a wandering person who travels from place to place as a lifestyle, with no permanent home
Welcome to The Global Village.
Look into the life of a nomad by exploring four of the most fascinating and impressive ways of living throughout the course of human history. I invite you to explore this online, interactive mini-museum.
Take a closer look at each lifestyle.
You can use dark mode, literally.
I took this photograph in Espoo, Finland.
When I was traveling through Scandinavia in the summer of 2019, I found a really strange house in an art museum. It was called the Futuro House.
I felt like I was walking into a piece of time, one that would be undiscovered by most. This weird house is the core of The Global Village.
The nomadic lifestyle ~ globally and historically.
I chose four different ways humans have lived over the course of history. These homes are drastically different in materials, shape, and climate —but all have the mark of a nomadic, temporary lifestyle.
Modeling was therapeutic to me.
I started modeling a couple of weeks after my hometown started sheltering in place due to COVID-19. Much like everyone else, I was trying hard to fend off unproductivity's rearing, ugly head.
The days started to blend together, and I would find myself modeling into the night on Friday nights for fun. It seemed to me that this project was the only consistent thing I had control over, and I reveled in it.
I tried to push this design as far as it could go.
This experience wasn't immersive enough
Don't bite off more than you can chew
Move the camera around, it's 3D!
I am feeling depressed and unproductive ≠ I am a worthless designer
The time to be crazy and creative is now
Your value is not determined by your productivity
Don't be alone as a designer
