Choreographed creation of a font.
I directed the realtime creation of a font by using my anatomy and gestures to articulate the anatomy of the letter forms.
These letters were written by Ouliana Ermolova, the interpreter.
She interpreted the the components of each letter form by following my gestures as I articulated the serifs, stems, apertures, ascenders, descenders etc. of each letter.
The video documentation of this design process became a video invitation for the open studios event, the writing became a logo of the event and was used as poster for the event
The creative direction of the film was the word open. Each artist took a different approach with respect to their studio practices, however they all worked within the framework that I established around the word “open”.
The commercial functioned as a vehicle to introduce student artists to visitors of the “Open Studio weekend at Yale School of Art” and to establish the concept of “Open” in relationship to that event.

As a graduate fellow I conducted a Media workshop that draws upon my
research in fashion photography, fashion periodicals and body politics of the
1960’s. This workshop was designed for graduate and undergraduate students
of Yale University. Participants of the workshop reviewed the archive of Harper’s
Bazaar from the 1960s. For the participants to better understand what was
going on in the past we recreated some of these posters.
The workshop took place at the photo studio where I shared my knowledge of
the process of fashion photography with the participants. Workshop participants
were able to try their hand at poster design, photography and modeling.

into what it means to be a “digital teenager” by introducing students to the
current level of design discourse surrounding the internet and various online
We engaged with Facebook, Google maps, Whatsapp and Google
mars. We stripped down facebook to its basic frame, asked the students to use
it and then be critical of it.
