Jimmy Loizeau

Jimmy Loizeau's projects are intended to exist on, or just inside the peripheries of possibility. These new systems, schemes or products provide an altered view on how we might interact with infrastructural systems or technologies for better or for worse exploring design possibilities through inclusive speculation. Projects like the Afterlife Project (2002) explore contemporary faith systems, whilst the Audio Tooth Implant (2001) proposes the next stage of in body communications technology and The Illegal Town Plan (2013-) looks at inclusive structures and strategies for local engagement in large scale town planning schemes.
