Social Practice

Green Team Providence

Groundwork Rhode Island received a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency in 2019 to focus on Zero Waste. I was hired as a teaching artist and engaged in a variety of projects with the summer youth Green Team. In an effort to assist Providence residents transition away from using plastic bags, students created this cloth bag design which was given away for free to residents of underserved communities. The design process included interviewing residents to better understand their needs and concerns. In a six part workshop, students learned the fundamentals of product design, graphic design and printmaking.

Brown University

As a response the the 2016 election, students in my Art of the Book course activated the printshop at both at the Brown and AS220 to make 500 booklets, 3,000 stickers and 300 protest posters. Materials were distributed by students for free across several protests. The project was funded by a grant from the Visual Art Department.

I was Lizzy’s mentor during her senior year at the Met High School. I assisted with screen printing, graphic design, and the ideation or her thesis piece, a mural made of wheat-pasted silkscreen prints. Made in 2017, located inside the AS220 Industries in the Media Labs room. 2017 time lapse video
