Cynthia Hathaway is a designer, born in Canada, trained at the Design Academy in Eindhoven and works and teaches in the Netherlands. She states: "I document what people do and how they behave mostly in their daily routine and in what some would consider mundane environments. I mean this in the sense of a 9-5, day-to-day grind… where nothing spectacular seems to happen. Office environments, streets, grocery stores, parking lots, subways, even people’s basements and garages, are terrains I love to be in and learn the focus of people’s attention. Where they play, eat, walk, shop and work; where they spend 99 % of their time. These are not the glitzy or intentionally designed spheres. These are the practical places. The places where things get done. It’s where I find my inspiration, and what feeds my designs."
