ARTIST STATEMENT: DADDY is an interdisciplinary art collective dedicated to the study of use in contemporary practice. Through fine art platforms, DADDY produces industrial and communication design, objects and installations that investigate the relationship between object and user.
Currently, DADDY is engaged in a series of projects traversing psycho-sexual characteristics of consumer goods as well as installations responding to aesthetics of "neighborhoods in transition".
