I just want to take this time to thank you so fucking much for supporting me. Your presence on this website means a lot more than you think.
My aim with Philip's Laboratory is to hone in on my experimental design work by continuously releasing items to you. These items have all been designed, created & despatched by myself.
Your support goes beyond anything I could have ever imagined. I started with an idea when I was 16 to create my own life, and to redefine what is considered socially acceptable and psychologically correct. I've always enjoyed the simplicity in experimentation & creating something from nothing.
The laboratory evokes everything I stand for; thinking for yourself, self expression & inspiring others to embrace individuality. It is spurred from the shit I received growing up for being different. Constantly excluded simply because I wanted to express myself - whether it was the non masculinity, the clothes i wore, or the interests i had.
I want my work to suggest that things are not always what they seem. If you look hard enough into something you will always find another interpretation.
I'm on a mission to show the youth that it is not a burden to feel that exclusion, to stand out, to be exiled, to be somebody that THEY are not.
