The Shoulders I Stand On Cannot Feel Me
My VCUarts senior thesis was a digital archive of love letters written in Yiddish and translated, sent between 1912 and 1914. Both Benjamin and Sadie had emigrated from different parts of Eastern Europe to escape horrifying persecution for being Jewish. This is an ongoing project, and I'm working to construct a narrative of their personal lives and coming-of-age, while noting the historical context and climate they were living in. The website can be accessed at https://shouldersofgiants.cargo.site/
Using optical fiber as a simulacra, this project seeks to make physical the connectedness of ideas. Everything is connected because everything can be connected. Drawing inspiration from the rhizomatic Pando tree organism, the flexible destination of light represents the propagation of information in an ecosystem. This system relies on chance and resists organization, creating intervals in ways that I am unable to control.

Art Is Life
My contribution to a larger publication about the theory of graphic design. I combine my love of design and art history, as well as the research of Mayan art and architecture that I worked on in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico in the summer of 2019.
