Designers can be artists, and artists, designers. The line between the two is complex and intriguing. My practice actively includes personal expression—while satisfying an objective's constraints. Not adhering to convention forces every stroke I make to be intentional and purposeful. I'm always looking to create moments that lead to a *gasp*.
Land of Illness. Land of Wellness.
Part of The Cantos series of performances, Land of Illness. Land of Wellness. is a sequential, daily, live-streamed reading of 2000+ pages of email exchanges between myself and ‘Client A.’
This perfunctory review of 9 months is an interrogation of practice, and laid bare: reverence, courtship, hopes, vision, strategy, practicalities, authorship, people-pleasing, emotional management, hyperbole, rage—to ultimately, the threat of litigation. Returning to these electronic exchanges exposed the structure of client-based graphic design, and illuminated the true cost of digital communication. The month-long read was psychological time travel, that allowed an opportunity to exorcise any residual occupying forces held in the body.
