Sometimes, I dream of catching a plane dressed to the nines. Certainly, there's comfort to consider, and ease of slipping one's shoes on and off, but it's tantalising because nobody knows anything about me, except for my formal Identity.
I've noticed chats on planes often centre around the good old "where are you from," or "what do you do?". Our apparent staples of conversation when you have no-one around you that you know (compared with the party atmosphere, where you can leap on the 'how do you know?' train.
To be able to present an entirely new version of myself without comparison holds distinct appeal. And yet, I hate fancy dress, perhaps because it's such a ritualised obvious façade.
Maybe I just want to be a secret agent, and pretend as if my life depended on it.
I'm an Australian designer who specialises in digital and cultural work. Most of my career thus far has been on the web, but I'm excited that it's starting to creep out into the real world.
I am the founder of Museum in a Box, making interactive museum objects with simple, fun tech, for wide-as-possible distribution, and I own a company called Good, Form & Spectacle, making design in service to cultural heritage for clients like The British Museum, MoMA, and the Wellcome Trust.
