FUTURETRO [pronounced future-retro] is my creative alias that symbolises a harmonious equilibrium between the future and the past. It represents a balance of dualities, blending futuristic thinking with the charm of retro design, flowing in the infinite now.
It is very easy to look fondly at the past but at the same time worry about the future. This can leave you feeling out of touch with yourself. Living in the now is the key to remaining healthy and happy as you focus purely on what is happening in the present moment.
My interactive light sculptures are inspired by the intricate beauty of nature and my inner visions. Through my creative practice I have explored a diverse range of topics including the visual representation of sound, chromatherapy (colour therapy), sacred geometry and fractals. The challenge was to combine these factors together in a way that would aid the process of relaxation through mindfulness.
This led to the Relaxaa range, consisting of geometric wall sculptures, and illuminating tables that aid relaxation and meditation, thereby improving wellbeing. All pieces in the Relaxaa range are created using specially designed patterns, scientifically proven to relax your brain, in conjunction with the use of coloured light, to help induce states of serenity. They have internal smart control systems, allowing interaction via an app and optional integration into any smart home. The pieces can also access the microphone in any smart device to transform the sounds into a synchronised audio-visual display.
In summary, Relaxaas are:
- Individually handcrafted
- Made of the highest quality solid woods
- Fully customisable
- Interactive and smart enabled
- Sound responsive
- Delivered and installed by the artist
- Designed to improve your wellbeing
- Created from the heart with love
Switch on, sit back …AAAND RELAXAA!
