Graphic Designer in New York City.
Came here to work for Sagmeister & Walsh and drop names.
Stayed for the food.
In the interest of making the paper, itself, a focal point of these pieces, I wanted to keep the printed area minimal. I felt the best way to make the paper important was to give it a utility. This would give the recipient something they could use year-round, not store or discard.
With each month the warmth of the paper stock changes to match the current Western climate. Each month's type is partially hidden to inspire curiosity and provoke a feeling of change, now emerging as the recipient takes note of it.
Cue Art is a personal project that eliminates the problem of being unable to decide what art to display on your wall. The project supplements framed artwork with QR codes. First, a gallery of images is chosen—perhaps from Flickr. A PHP code references this gallery, pulling images and randomly assigning them to the framed QR codes. The PHP will refresh every seven days, randomly reassigning new images into each frame. The end result is a room of framed codes for the viewers to scan to reveal the artwork within that frame. The PHP's weekly refreshing will keep the viewer engaged to see what new art is displayed.
The radiometer being a light-sensitive object, I wanted the package to carry the same reflective property. It becomes interactive with a malleable face subject to the consumer's changes—the glossy, angled surface reflecting light in a manner determined by the product's holder.
