Installation artist Meryl Pataky is a designer that likes philosophy and using hot flames -- a very unique combo for the San Fransisco artist.

Entitled Metaphysics, Meryl Pataky's featured project is based on Plato's writings on "the first principles of things." This installation is definitely a deep and meaningful way to string together these philosophical writings. Check out Meryl Pataky's works in the featured gallery.

Implications - No longer just looking for attractive designs, consumers are seeking out deeper meanings in their products. Items that spark a conversation are far more appealing to those customers who want to dig deeper than just something appealing to look at. A company looking to grow its brand could focus on this desire from shoppers for a greater connection with their purchases.
