HABITUATION: the diminishing of an innate response to a frequently repeated stimulus
DE:HABITUATION is a collection of Jesmonite tiles and larger-scale pieces that explore incidental mark-making techniques. Habituation results in parts of a landscape going unnoticed because they are no longer new. The collection, created for an interior setting, is designed to delay the occurrence of habituation through hand-craft techniques that continuously produce unique and unexpected outcomes.
In a time when technology is rapidly developing, and in many fields replacing people, design that celebrates the uniqueness of the human touch is becoming increasingly popular. The collection responds to this trend, demonstrating it has not been mass-produced through its incidental processes.
