Aspiring to Pumpkin’s Love, the Love in My Heart

Yayoi Kusama
David Zwirner Gallery NYC
2023



Three massive painted bronze undulating pumpkin sculptures, each titled ‘Aspiring to Pumpkin’s Love, the Love in My Heart’, debuting a new form that transfigures the organic pumpkin shapes Kusama has reimagined over several decades.

These wall-like structures situate viewers in a space that envelops them in her characteristic polka dots.

The 123 Aluminum side table is recyclable, durable and locally sourced in Quebec. 

Aluminium is infinitely recyclable, durable and a large natural resource in Quebec. It is composed of 3 laser cut parts, a cost and labour effective method of fabrication. Its flat pack design reduces packaging waste and cost whilst optimizing transportation. It requires no hardware to assemble.
 
The spirit of this project is to honor each participant, not only the end user, but the designer, fabricators, shippers and environment by faciliating each of their respective experiences.

Seawheeze Race Medal




For the 2021 edition of SeaWheeze, Lululemon wanted to commemorate the popular races’ 10th year anniversary with a special medal to honor their participants around the world.



I was tasked to design two medals, one for their half marathon and one for their 5K run. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the production of the medal did not occur.
