DESIGN/PROCESS is an exhibition about the DNA of design and how inspiration travels the chain from mentor to protégé, from concept to execution. Featured are the objects/products of professional artists/designers who have mentored students in the design process displayed alongside the products of the next generation of young designers. This generational “passing of the torch” demonstrates that the flame of inspiration can spark new ideas and innovations in design that continually respond to the ever-changing currents of contemporary culture.
Included in the exhibition are selected works by esteemed educators who represent a consortium of schools and prestigious art/design programs including Otis College of Art and Design, Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Pilchuck Glass School, USC, UCLA, LMU (Loyola Marymount University), Cal Poly Pomona, and CSU San Bernardino. Central to this theme is the demonstration of how these educators communicate their core aesthetics through the design process and create products that exemplify honed design principles put into practice.
The Protégés are represented by works that illustrate their grasp of design fundamentals conflated with their ability to elevate, adapt, and channel the ordinary into the realm of the unexpected, the evocative, and the sensory. Drawing inspiration from art historical, botanical, architectural, and anatomical references young designers such as Tyler Hagstrom and Sara Aguliera transcend conventional chair and wall shelving design (see Quantum-Biosis Chair and Key Pattern Shelf) to create new hybrid products that incorporate functionality with technology, use new materials with those reclaimed or repurposed, and mash modern cultural symbols with inherited patterns of design.

Claremont Village

My mom and I have been going to Claremont forever now, and if you follow this blog than you know it too! It's a cute town that's near the foothills, has colleges, food, beer and cute shops to wonder in. 

We decided to take Loki with us that day, and it was so damn this the hottest summer in a while? Or do I just forget the prior years...eaither way it was on fire in Claremont that day. 

We stumbled upon a taco shack that was undeniably cute! I'm working on finding the name of it, I can't seem to find it on any listing.
Over by the restroom by the taco shop there was the wood csrbed donkey so we had to take pics with it! Poor Loki was so hot that day!

A few things I do that make me feel like me

I start work in two hours so that means I have just enough time to start writing a blog post. Its been an inspiring week and I feel like there are signs from all over the universe guiding me into the right direction. I have had some meaningful time spent alone as well as with other people. I'm trying to have "more fun" and not worry so much about the little things. A few weeks ago I saw a psychic and she told me a ton of things, it was super strange to feel so vulnerable and unsure if what she was saying was true or not. 

The things she said that made me think... Ill be a mother, not now but in a few years. That I will be a successful Business woman, because I have vision and drive. That I have a dark spirit following me, That I want to be happy but that I only will be if I let whatever happened to me in my past go free.
As you can see it was pretty intense, full of tears and I was scared, but I knew that she was right because for a long time I had been unhappy and it was…

Village at La Floresta Walking Tour

Hi y'all it's been a few weeks since the opening of the new shopping center in Brea "Village at La Floresta" and I've finally had some time to share my experience and photos that I took that day!

As some of you may know, this new shopping center has been in the works for a few years now and is part of a whole new community of new custom homes and even a retirement home as well as a swimming club all under the umbrella of La Floresta, a master planned community.

One of the big draws for this new community is the fact that they had a whole foods as part of their shopping centers new tenants, and us crazy people in North oc have been having to go out to Tustin to get our fix of pre-peeled oranges and lemon infused water, I do people really buy that crap anyway? Wenever I go it's usually to buy something fun from the beauty section or the salad bar!!! Yum!!!

When I went out to see the new location a few weeks ago I went in on the opening day! Crazy I t…
