Accident Factory

2017 - 2018

Accidents are an incredible creative resource because they open up unforeseen options. They allow us to think thoughts that we wouldn't have had ourselves. But are they a resource that we can tap in to? And is it even possible to be intentionally unintentional?

During my thesis studies at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo I set out to answer these questions. I carried out my investigation with a range of creative experiments that were informed by the random and uncontrollable conditions. By working with unstable variables, I was able to harvest serendipitous results. And by committing to irrelevant processes, I found that I could generate collateral compositions.
