The Mythos of the Visionary Artist
Book + Exhibition Design
Liminal Spaces is a hypothetical group exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art. It is an exercise in typography, sequential design, and curation. This book focuses on the theme of belief systems and the way alchemy and spiritual practices have influenced various artists over time.
The idea for this book was inspired by alchemical symbols found throughout history that artists used to tell their story. At one point in time alchemy was about turning silver into gold, but for some it was a quest for spiritual enlightenment and self-transformation.
Hilbert Silberer was a psychologist from the early twentieth century who worked with artists that practiced alchemy. He believed the artist could use expressive language and alchemical symbols to convey their own psychological process, and he wrote extensively about the subject. The approach for the design narrative of this book uses alchemical motifs along with Silberer's technique of discovering the self.
Dot Artificial Intelligence Conference*
Dot Artificial Intelligence Conference is a technology conference for developers, engineers, and data scientists. The name of the conference borrows from the syntax of domain names, introducing the idea of code. By exploring the concept of code, I wanted to convey the way it is visually abstract: code as a set of rules that carries meaning, code as a framework that communicates intelligence through non-legible forms.
Fractured Fairy Tales and Other Stories as Told by Terry Gilliam
Fractured Fairy Tales is about the films of director Terry Gilliam. The concept of the book is based on the idea of Fairy Tales, but the ones that should have been read to us growing up, the ones that are oftentimes a little subversive. Through his films, Gilliam critiques the present world with unique characters and narratives and offers his audience a cautionary perspective.
