At the end of 2018, we had a lot of stuff in our studio. All of it had been used once, but it had no afterlife beyond that. We make so many things that only exist in a digital realm, but the physicality of them remains the same. How could we repurpose our paints, woods, and foam and reincarnate our previously loved materials?
The answer was a project called “Trophies,” which became a personal project highlighting the secondary uses of materials we have accumulated from previous client works. We designed, painted, cut, and built new costumes and podiums to give our materials a new identity which we would display as “trophies” championing their reinvented identities.
