Throughout my time at RISD and beyond, I’ve been assigned several projects which I’ve had a lot of fun thinking through, crafting, or sketching out. While it wouldn’t be appropriate to give them their own page, I think that play and process work still needs a place on in everyone’s portfolio. So, this is my place. 

Most projects to the left are one-week brainstorming pieces that I had a lot of fun making or were a cornerstone in working out a larger goal/project.  Given this, the documentation is not the same quality as my long-term projects.

How can a place lead us to a story?

Momentary Voices was a collaboration with Anežka Minaříková and Anh Le. This project began with the prompt to tell the story of a space through design intervention. Together, my collaborators and I intervened at the Providence Washington Bridge by creating a series of transparent plaques. These plaques aim to frame and bring attention to aspects of the bridge which often go unnoticed or which everyday users wish to cover up.

Their goal was to create a perspective shift, a moment of pause, which elevates the unexpected and unwanted voices of Washington Bridge in a subtle fashion. The aim is to subject the expected through re-imagining the kind of content that can exist and be appreciated on a public plaque.

While the voices of graffiti, litter, and decay are often painted over or swept away, these plaques exist to create a space for enduring commemoration of these details. The aim is to frame their existance during and continually after their visible time on the Washington Bridge and Linear Park walkway.

The Place
Washington Bridge & Linear Park. The Washington Bridge is a series of three bridges carry Interstate 195, US Route 6, and US Route 44 1A over the Seekonk River connecting India Point in Providence to Watchemoket Square in East Providence, Rhode Island.

The Stories
“The desolated feeling of being with at least a thousand people per hour and still alone.”

“We sit at a convergence of every human life. The people you are with are your only points of connection.”
