Paul Fuog

Alternate States
In this talk, Paul will discuss the studio’s ongoing methodology for creating work that explores the interplay of opposing states. The focus will be centered on a number of spectrums: Amateur - Professional, Familiar - unfamiliar, Ordinary - extraordinary, Past - Future and Physical - digital.

He'll examine how through thinking about work as being plotted on a spectrum, U-P seek to find relationships between things that at first might seem disconnected.

This presentation will aim to show how both U-P's commercial and autonomous work is a continued inquiry into how they can make connections - between things, time and people.
