Video Chat Compositions
2020–2021
Thesis work, experiential design
Enactments of a series of instructions that simulate connection and collaboration through the computer screen. In Video Chat Compositions, a minimum of two people on Zoom work together to create compositions with their bodies, whether making the letters of the alphabet (top), hugging (bottom left), or connecting parallel lines (bottom right).


Pop-In Eats More
2018
Identity system, art direction, website
Branding, art direction, and website design for a pop-up shop centered around food and gathering. The act of hosting a dinner party informed the website experience (a horizontal table setting cycling through prep, party, and clean-up), photography, and how-to videos.
The online shopping experience resembled a long horizontal table setting that depicted scenes from party prep to party time to clean-up.



These semi-helpful guides provide play off of Instagram and Buzzfeed how-to videos.
