Choreographic Forces: Staging Awkwardness

MFA Thesis Book

The tools of graphic design have certain choreographic forces that determine how a graphic designer will create and see the content. Whether working with analog tools or digital, they are involved in the design process. I am interested in making performative features of the tool visible. My work aims to foreground the tools themselves as active participants capable of informing, directing, and misaligning the final output rather than merely facilitating the design’s production.
