It’s interesting to see all the collaborative work that’s gone into the projects in John’s art portfolio. One recent collaboration, between John and a planning committee of eight others, saw the construction of a time capsule for the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology. The capsule, constructed for the school’s centennial and is set to be opened in 2116, comprises both a functional capsule and a fascinating public artwork.

John’s style tends to vary depending on who he’s collaborating with, and the nature of the project, but there’s a certain cohesion between all the objects and projects in the designer’s portfolio that speaks to a clear sense of aesthetics and functionality.
