is creating Communication Design for Social Change

I believe my role as a designer in the world in 2017 is to create pieces of communication that motivate, inspire, delight, and effect change on a large scale. The format varies from humor writing to politically-motivated pseudo-performance art, depending on the topic at hand. I'm just full of surprises. But as a graduate student, I lack the funding to fully achieve my goals.

My current project is an artists' book tackling the issue of gun control in America. My plan is to compile every piece of gun control legislation, both passed and failed, since 1991 in chronological order. The failed legislation will be differentiated from passed legislation through paper color: failed legislation on grey paper, passed on white. Peppered in by date throughout the book will be all of the mass shootings that have occurred within the same time period (for a sense of scale, there have been over 1,500 since 2013 alone). The book will act as an interactive data visualization, showing every bit of congress's inefficacy to make any lasting changes to this country's gun violence epidemic. The data gathering alone is more than a one-woman job, so payments through here will allow me to hire some help!

Ongoing projects include Anxiety Tarot, a set of tarot cards designed and written by me with the express goal of opening up the conversation around mental illness in a low-pressure, casual environment.

Any support is greatly appreciated!

Don't underestimate your significance. Even the smallest donut is a treat. At this level, donors will be recognized by name in a segment of the final printed book, Thoughts & Prayers, which will be on display in the Sullivan Galleries at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago from April 28 through May 16, 2018. If you wish to remain anonymous, please let me know. We can give you a fun pseudonym.
