SCULPTURAL AUDIO

Visualizing music through photography and paper folding. The images shown here were created using a wet paper folding technique, set overnight to dry in abstract forms, and then arranged and photographed.
        The song depicted is my own, called “It’s a Secret.” The foundation of the song revolves around a kalimba pattern that I played, manipulated, and layered with washed out, rising synth passages. The smooth, sloping forms of the paper draw attention to the music’s high dynamic range. The translucent parts of the image are evocative of the tracks lush, layered percussion.

KINESTHETIC

(Who am I?) As part of my Graduate Studio I class at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), each student was asked to contributed a 16-page signature in response to this question, which began with a series of tasks as a way to set off the path of exploring, responding, and collecting in and around Providence, RI.
        The spreads shown to the right depict my personal kinesthetic and psychological experiences as I explore the space around Providence and carry out ritualistic daily athletic movements—biking, ping pong, tennis, and soccer. The photography arrangement is inspired by that of a musical passage or score, the score of my kinesthetic seasons.
