LIVD Volume 15.1

LIVD is a semi-annual print publication produced in the Pacific Northwest, dedicated to the intersection of art, design, culture and how these influence lived experience. Created and edited by me, the publication includes contributions from professional artists, designers and the wise – many of whom do not participate in the dominant mechanisms of culture production. LIVD pays hommage to the inspiring and idealistic efforts of the early twentieth century avant-garde, balancing the academic with the personal and experimental.

To extend the reach of the publication, podcasts are ongoing and touch upon the topics discussed in each volume of the printed publication. The twitter feed keeps pace with real-time issues and information.

2016 DRS Conference

I’m slated to present LIVD at the 2016 DRS Conference in Brighton. The paper will be published with conference proceedings soon.

Research + Theory in Design

This winter term at PSU, I am teaching the pilot year of a course I developed on (graphic) design research and theory. To date, I have developed coursework on research, theory, design thinking and failure.
