Visual Identity, Psychogeography, Placemaking
Manhole covers are doors to the underground and are essential for the maintenance of a town. But what else lies beneath? What kind of mysteries and histories are hidden from our sight?

As a response to the visual languag of suburbia I created a collection of patterns inspired by mundane shapes and objects I found on my psychogeographic walks through Kingston. These patterns are intended to decorate the manhole covers of this town, making ordinary objects beautiful and referring to the unknown world that only the fictitious creations of our mind have access to.
