Unpost This. Reshare This.
Typograpghy design for a zine series
Unpost This. Reshare This. began with a crucial question: "How can Baruch promote diversity and show support for its diverse student body in a non-invasive and non-performative way?" As students of Baruch, we had witnessed casual racism and inadequate support for marginalized communities across all levels of the institution. We aimed to replace superficial diversity initiatives with concrete, student-driven solutions by crafting a comprehensive diversity proposal. To connect our proposed solutions with the community's lived experiences, we engaged with students through social media, Instagram polls, and campus flyers. The responses we received were eye-opening, revealing that many students shared similar concerns. We compiled this information into two zines, Unpost This. and Reshare This., each featuring our proposal. Unsure of the outcome but hopeful for impact, we set up a stand outside our gallery in the Newman Library for five weeks, amplifying often silenced voices within our student body. By distributing our zines, we encouraged students and faculty alike to join us in addressing these ongoing issues, fostering curiosity and inspiring meaningful conversations to create lasting change.

I collaborated in curating and designing social media graphics for the open call titled "Re:present," a sequel of sorts to "Re:semblance." This exhibition delves into the experience of time and self during the post-pandemic period, examining our relationships with our filtered self-depictions and the disorientation of time and routine. As we navigate this renewed normal, "Re:present" serves as a yardstick to measure just how far we’ve come.Featuring works that deal with the fabrication of history, the body's diurnal cycle, the persistence of memory, and more, the exhibition takes viewers on a winding journey through fragments of reality. From digital spaces to transcendental experiences and the cycles of nature, "Re:present" invites us to redefine what time and self mean in the present, whenever that may be now. We encourage viewers to engage with these intricate themes and explore the multifaceted perspectives offered by the artists in the exhibition.

I collaborated in curating and designing a series of social media graphics for the open call titled "Resemblance," an exhibition exploring the distortions brought about by the collision of the online world and the "real world" as our society becomes increasingly intertwined with technology. The curatorial statement delves into the impact of these distortions on our semblances through virtual bodies, masked or camouflaged bodies, and disembodiment. The exhibition features artworks predominantly created during the pandemic, as well as a few pre-existing pieces, which together highlight our ever-changing normal. As we navigate a world where physical interactions are limited, the virtual world offers a semblance of society, allowing us to distort our authentic selves behind the veil of anonymity. We encourage viewers to question how we represent ourselves and what semblance of self we choose to embody in the digital age.

I created a light-hearted and engaging tutorial video for Mad Rose Specialty Foods, showcasing their key products in a delicious recipe. The video was designed to increase product awareness and sales and was successfully integrated into the company's blog posts as part of their online marketing strategy.

The City That Slept is a collaborative video art project illustrating our disorienting experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. Using the "exquisite corpse" surrealist technique, this video montage unites the unique personal aesthetics of each artist into a collective expression. It offers a glimpse into our day to day routines through a plethora of activities, as a means of coping in times of uncertainty, where “normal” has become an illusive conviction.
