FILTER: Experiential Design

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

Grad X
Grad X is a series of events for RISD graduate students from different departments to share their in-progress work. Georgie Nolan and I collaborated on the promo posters, sending the compositions back-and-forth and building upon each others’ designs.

Since Grad X moved onto Zoom, Georgie and I used its screen-sharing and whiteboard features to create drawing activities for attendees to do together during breaks.
