“Spatial design has always interested me, particularly if it is highly structured.” Perhaps that’s why Adam Black – who is just 19-years-old – was a very enthusiastic tree house builder when he was a child. “I even built one on my neighbour’s roofs, causing major damage to her satellite dish,” he recalls of his life-long interest in personal spaces. Currently in his first year studying Interaction Design at the Cape Town Creative Academy in South Africa, Black has moved on from the tree house sculpting of his childhood. His interest, and resulting expedition into the ‘art void’, came about at the age of 16. “My art teacher started encouraging me to do whatever I wanted. That really opened up the possibilities for me of what could be done,” he says.
