Do you think modern society is formed from history or created within the present?

Both. I think society is formed from both past, with lessons learnt from the past passed through generations, and through the present by introducing new social structures and challenging the ideas of the past.

Natural. I think nature got things pretty right

Puppies. Everywhere. I love dogs.

What do you think the best man-made invention is?
Books. As opposed to other inventions they serve as an end in themselves. They are expansive rather than tools used to act out tasks we are incapable of doing.

What’s your favourite man-made food?
Falafel. As a vegan it is always a mission to find something I can eat. Falafel often saves the day.

What would you be doing if you weren't modelling?
Modelling doesn't occupy so much of my time. I am focused on philosophy and fine art. I decided to pursue art rather than philosophy as I believe the sublime transcends all else. Transcendence is the purpose of life.

Obsessed with?
Currently I am obsessed with avocados, bubble tea and Brancusi.

Do you think modern society is formed from history or created within the present?
Right now I think our society is almost entirely backwards looking. The pursuit of profit has shrunk the innovative element of our minds. We have come so far we don't quite know where we are going I think this frightens us and has lead to an overwhelming amount of indulgence in nostalgia.

What would be you do think you perfect future would be?
For humanity to move towards a perfect future we need to be more honest with ourselves. To become our perfect selves you must be aware of your imperfections. I don't think perfection is attainable but I believe the pursuit of it is the important thing.

Describe your perfect future?
A future that’s transparent, honest and not controlled. Everyone is ecologically aware, respects and takes advantage of alternative energies such as solar or wind.

Haha, I prefer to be asked questions than ask them.
