Joseph Popper (b. London 1986) examines space travel and other human technological endeavours by imagining future narratives and simulating fictional experiences. His works depart from developments of the emerging present and project toward things to come.
Popper employs handcrafted imagery and built environments in his approach which expose the honesty and rigour of his process. Everyday objects, simple materials and found locations transform into props and stages for playful, critical fictions where the normal is made fantastic.
Joseph holds an MA from the Royal College of Art, where he is currently a Senior Tutor in the School of Design. He is also Associate Lecturer in MA Design Critical Practice at Goldsmiths.
