Rafael Lozano-Hemmer: A Crack in the Hourglass, An Ongoing COVID-19 Memorial
Exhibition
2021
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer created a memorial to those lost—unbound by time or place. Portraits of loved ones are rendered in sand, printed by a modified plotter. The portraits disappear almost as soon as they are completed. Finished portraits are photographed, printed, and added to the gallery on a monthly basis. 

The design of the exhibition was a close collaboration between curatorial, exhibition design, and graphic design with parameters from the artist. All of the exhibition graphics conform to a grid created by the tabloid-sized portraits.

George Clemens Architecture
Identity
2021

George Clemens Architecture is a high-quality residential architecture firm that looks to the past to create a better future.

Following a change in partnership at the firm, I was tasked with creating a brand identity for the newly established George Clemens Architecture. The monogram features George’s initials interlocked using a beveled motif; a common feature in traditional residential architecture.
