What Comes After | Mar–Apr 2019 | Alcove Gallery, Chicago | Exhibition concept, exhibit design, and catalog
What Comes After was an exhibition featuring the remixing of prior works—works comprising mixes of images from various sources. Mixes upon mixes, this work reflects upon contemporary media culture and the act of appropriation. It is a manifestation of What Comes After Remix?, an essay by new media theorist Lev Manovich.
Outlying | Solo show | Jan–Feb 2019 | Seerveld Gallery, Palos Heights, IL | Exhibition concept, exhibit design, and all included works
Outlying represents investigation in two areas: outlying design form and design content. Examining form, the works lean outward from standard graphic design practice to areas that are uncommon or blend with other disciplines. Examining content, the works focus on design itself as subject matter. (See more.)
