Series of visuals and text that explore the cultural background of my immediate family... myself as the main subject... impact of growing up as a multi-racial (Irish-Hawaiian) individual and how different locations throughout the United States influenced my understanding of it... difference in racial awareness between siblings.
“I have been on the receiving end of racial injustice due to my bi-racial make-up... regardless of the communities racial diversity or counted population... I am tired of the preconceived notions that are automatically granted. I am tired of staying in the lines.”

I wanted to tell a story of how small things greatly affect global warming. I started with something as innocent as a tree. Then starting with the tractor I showed how we all contribute to the warming of the planet....
I made a series of movies to display the objects and the story of them for the seminar show. Unable to make the virtual objects in time for the end of the semester, I settled for a series of shots in a virtual gallery...

A Wasteland Paradise
An analysis and personal recreation of my recent experience of being away from home, and the steps one goes through to adapt and adjust, before returning to their origin.
Using the photographs, writings and collected items, I will compress a week’s worth of information into a book, which will be broken down into sections based on the day and the corresponding phase of the cycle.
Friday/Saturday (arrival); Saturday (adjustment); Sunday (exploration); Monday (absorbing/fitting in); Tuesday (boredom/branch out); Wednesday (disappointment); Thursday (reminisce); Friday (departure)
I began to see that the best way for the book to remain consistent was to keep the design “tricks” down to a minimum.

bag lunch “makes bath products that smell like food”
creation, identity, design relating to a (witty, humorous) line of bath products (lip balm, lotions, shower gels, bathing bubbles), including packaging, labels and promotional posters
“The logo is the basis for the identity of ‘bag lunch.’ Its strong presence is seen throughout all bag lunch products. The lettering enclosed within the circle is transparent, which allows the color of the surface it is on to show through and therefore become united with the logo.”

the half-tone dot
original idea —
series of posters and one book dealing with the ideas of and surrounding transience, estrangement, impermanence and displacement.
“I deviated quite a bit from my original statement but it was necessary for me to do once I discovered something I felt passionate about. The half-tone dot has captured my attention in a way that nothing has before and all of the experience it took for me to arrive... was worth it... I am a storyteller and a printmaker and a designer and that’s okay with me...”

Video and sound piece, packaging, posters
Initially, with the video I planned to take the material that I shot, in different places, and rearrange it, so that clips from each place were distributed uniformly... [later] I decided that it might be a better idea to keep each place relegated to one single time-place... so that one place comes and goes, and never reappears again... after arranging my project in sections, I labored, creating music and sound to accompany the video, as a sort of musical/auditory response to the silent visuals. All sound has been generated by my hands on an instrument, my voice, and field recordings. Many pieces were written, recorded, and mixed for each section, which created a bank of various compositions for each clip...
