Textile Design, Fine Art / Fiber Art

SOFA Chicago Connect, 2018

The UMass Dartmouth team was inspired by the daily impact of the ocean on life in New England. Our own connected space, Catch and Release, was designed to channel the currents of SOFA visitors, like a school of fish, and invite them to share a moment of curiosity and inquiry with their friends, companions, and even strangers.

As the head of the textile design team it was my job to communicate across the various teams to create a cohesive textile element for the space. My job was to construct the sail cloth structure and attach that structure to the wooden frame. I was also part of the proposal process critiquing and working with other teams in furniture, lighting, and structure.
