The 100 Worlds Project began with a singular idea – to create for the sake of creating. To play and have fun as a child would. As a Creative Director of a design firm, I use my creativity to benefit my clients. In the shifting tides of business climates and new paradigms, I felt the need to channel my creative energy into something that was pure. To challenge myself to be resourceful, to see everyday objects in a different way, and uncover new potential in objects and talents that were often overlooked.
I turned to a favorite childhood toy – the globe. A globe represents community, collaboration, communication, materials, people… These metaphors gave me inspiration, which lead to countless sketches and ideas. Objects I collected for years began to find their places. People I knew began to provide vital skills and resources that helped complete each piece. I set a goal to create 100 unique globes. What I uncovered was far more than the sculptures I ended up creating: A renewed sense of vigor about my world, my community, and my purpose.
