Video Chat Compositions
Thesis work, experiential design
Enactments of a series of instructions that simulate connection and collaboration through the computer screen.

Providence River Scavenger Hunt
Thesis work, experiential design, book design
A scavenger hunt for two players, who each hold separate booklets which are bound together by six feet of colorful string. The players walk alongside each other at an enforced distance, working through the scavenger hunt prompts in the booklets. The prompts alternate: one partner does the noticing while the other notes their observations. With the next prompt, they switch roles, sharing back and forth.
