Design Exhibition: States of Matter

A collaboration with the University of Texas Design Class of 2011

This tripartite arrangement situates all states of the project for equal consideration and suggests that the design process can yield more than one conclusion.

Design History Database

This design history database makes the editor's role alarmingly visible by saturating the layout with deliberate ambiguity. The sparse, but highly ordered homepage and its dubious, bolded links instill the user with a conscious feeling of hesitancy in his quest to gain knowledge. This site presents an honest lack of authority and conveys the message that no fact is free from the communicator's perspective nor the perceiver's interpretation.


This, That, and the Other

This triptych is a study of the identification and articulation of characterizing visual elements. The first and third image were chosen, based on visual appeal, from a pool of unassociated photographs. After analyzing the distinguishing aspects of each image, the center photograph was composed to bridge their discrepancies.
