In collaboration with Megan Feehan, this workshop was an exploration with Lust of the ‘area where the virtual and physical merge, where new things can happen.’ The site was the CIT building and its immediate surroundings of the city block. We were asked to research – to do, in Jeroen’s words, ‘a very-very-quick-scan’ of the area to determine a point of entry. Ideas ?would develop from analyses of the scan.
We started with the idea that there is a lot of hidden information inherent ?to a building’s functioning. For example, the wireless networks that exist in the building that pop in and out of use are different depending on where one is located. We collected the names of each wireless network from each of the four corners, on each of the 6 floors. We also were interested in the elevator’s usage – is an elevator always running, where are the gaps in use? ?Where does it travel over a certain period of time? How could it be recorded and visually displayed in real-time?
This animation is a collection of what would be projected on the face ?of the building. The purpose was to show various functions of the building such as the elevator usage, shadows reacting to the extruded materials that make up the facade, the wi-fi networks that exist in the building which pop in and out of use depending on where one is located, the weather, the window shade position based on location of the sun, a computer animation affected by the physicalness of the building, the human activity of each floor and discipline, and lastly exposing the structural framework of the building.
Besides being visually interesting. This hints at the inner life of the building—that it is a constantly changing thing. It is a solid material but also an interactive design.

This project started in the Providence Public Library, where I was asked to explore the Special Collections Department. Fascinated with leading lines that filled up many pages of old typography books, these lines then led me to explore the atlases,which I carefully examined lines and letters to locate coordinates.
These posters are a representation of a flight taken from London’s ?Heathrow Airport to New York City (JFK). In between departure and arrival are the many flights taking place at the same time, each with their ?own destination.

I used to walk by the Arcade building and what used to be the Providence Bank Building almost everyday for the two years I lived in Providence.
The empty space remains static, yet movement surrounds it constantly. ?How could this space be activated again? I was interested in showing how the short term alters the long term structures, and how time can be put back on to not only a once active space but on the streets by challenging scale. This project is an experimental projection of activating space.

Visible Language has been concerned with research and ideas that help define the unique role and properties of written language. A basic premise of the journal has been that writing/ reading form an autonomous system of language expression on its own terms. To this must be added research and ideas that help define the presentation of information within the digital arena. The shift from page to screen is comparable in its significance to the shift from manuscript to print. Developing the knowledge base and conventions for this new media will take time and challenge our ability to move beyond the book and into more fluid, relational and responsive systems of presentation.

This book uses the text from E.B. White’s Here is New York, which is about the author’s journey through Manhattan. With the reader arm in arm White creates a small masterpiece of concision and sense of place.
I wandered around new york taking photographs of the places White wrote about, my pictorial and typographic stories co-mingle with the reader.
