Open Engagement, A Socially Engaged Art Practice Conference

Chicago, 2017

Open Engagement (OE) is an annual artist-led conference dedicated to expanding the dialogue around and creating a site of care for the field of socially engaged art. The conference highlights the work of transdisciplinary artists, activists, students, scholars, community members, and organizations working within the complex social issues and struggles of our time.

The design for 2017’s design, the theme of JUSTICE was explored through the phrase, “No Justice, No Peace” and imagery from Chicago’s Torture Justice Memorial. Using a two color printing process, all print materials were printed locally and with sustainable materials.

Double-Sided Broadsheet Poster
5″ x 3.5″ Pocket Book
MFA Thesis Exhibitions Materials, 2016

UIC’s 2016 MFA graduates hosted three separate exhibitions in Gallery 400. The poster/mailer served as promotion for all three. It was accompanied by a pocketbook with more details on the shows and each artist’s work.

All materials are designed in two-colors. The front of the poster and the cover of the pocketbook feature fragments of the exhibited student work. Each show was assigned a shape—triangle, rectangle, and circle—and artwork from each show is abstracted in their respective shapes. The reverse of the poster nods to the work of Eve Fowler and features a quote from Rihanna.

Laser cut star chart invitation

A personal project, this invite was for a dear friend’s 30th birthday bonfire.

Instead of using ink to build color, three layers of colored paper were adhered together and etched away with a laser cutter to expose the different layers of colored paper.

Projected Prose on Smoke from Fog Machines, 2015

To/Through explores the relationship between visual and written storytelling, memory, and history via letterforms, words, and phrases projected onto smoke. Words and phrases only become readable as light catches the smoke—a reference to the ephemeral nature of recollection and memories.
