Modular Type

Generative Type Specimen

2019

A modular poster sized book that explores interaction between letterforms and words. Using a combination of blend modes and processing transforms words into form, adding new meaning. The book’s form is also modular, allowing the viewer to re-sequence the book, create visual relationships between pages or dissect the book into posters.

Nuclear Fellowship

Motion Posters

2019

During my 6 month fellowship with the organization NSquare, a program that fosters collaboration between artists and nuclear experts, I generated a lot of prototypes and user journeys. This included a series of posters and branding for a speculative Nuclear Art Festical. These prototypes were surrounding ideas for how to encourage public engagement with the subject of nuclear threat. 

Nos Otros

Publication 

2020

I spent the summer 2019 facilitating a collaborative publication that documents the binational art space that exists on the border of San Diego and Tijuana. Although functioning on very urgent border territory, this group of art activists that reside on both sides of the border have created a third community together due to proximity and necessity. The publication is a constellation of 10 different parts that include essays, interviews, posters and photographs from artists on both sides of the border (that being, white Americans, Mexicans and Mexican-Americans). Although I did design most elements of the publication I included as much input as possible from my collaborators in the visual output of the publication. My role was largely that of coordinator. I managed the budget, lead correspondence to get all the collaborators on board and was an editor as I collected and packaged all of the contents.

Consumer Amnesia 

Publication

2019

A research project that records all of my belongings and documents the ones that were made under harmful working conditions.  Consumer Amnesia examines selective memory and consciousness in regards to products and services we rely on, often times because its faster, cheaper and more convenient not to. The form of the publication, loose pages which can be organized as a narrative or dispersed like a collection of belongings, is meant to reflect the overwhelming nature of the content

Barragán Casa Estudio 

Posters & Logo

2019

Proposed branding concept for the Luis Barragán studio and museum in Mexico City. 

 

Connect Divide 

Publication

2018

A book of digitally constructed wire fences from Providence’s Federal Hill. Although these fences are in place to provide privacy and separation, they also create an aesthetic that visually connects the houses as one community.

This book of folded posters has no order and can be resequenced by the viewer. Although the posters are double sided, the viewer can only see the other side by peeking through the book’s French folds as if infringing on private property. Their only other option is to reconstruct the barriers created by the pages by unfolding the book’s full form.

The fences in the book were constructed in Cinema 4D as a symbol of “authenticity” or lack there of.
