White, Discovering The Importance Of Emptiness
White is the absence of matter—the removal of chaos. Our society is one of ubiquity, engulfed by an ever-growing interest in social identities, which have become increasingly inseparable from the information and material goods that we consume. White explores the nature of choice; in particular how we choose, why we choose and the implications those decisions have on the formation of our social identities and behaviors. White examines the importance of design and its relevance in improving the fundamental principles of our existence, which aids in balancing social, intellectual and emotional experiences. White intends to create tangible forms that accentuate the abundance of matter present in our lives and introduces the order necessary in achieving clarity.

The void, located directly where one would rest their head, forms a dependent relationship with the plant. This accent of living organisms serves to remind us of the strong connection that we have with nature and the importance of sustaining a harmonious spirit.
