THE BROADCAST / 2021
The Broadcast is a digital platform and virtual experience published by Pioneer Works. While the initial beta launched in 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Broadcast is now fully realized as the virtual extension of the cultural center.
As part of a small team of designers and developers, I programmed the front-end for Broadcast 2.0 – which featured a deep collection of headline fonts, embedded media, page colors, and adaptable modules.

THE DICTIONARY OF DARK MATTERS / 2020
The Dictionary of Dark Matters is a publication containing an assemblage of poetry, prose, creative writing, personal histories, and illustrations contributed by the students of Dark Matters: Critical Theory of Technology taught by American Artist and TA Zainab Aliyu at the School for Poetic Computation.
With 562 pages that hold definitions for terms such as Transparency, Redaction, Racial Gaze, Abolition, Tax State, Causal Pleasure, etc. based on students’ personal experiences and (un)learnings from the course, the culminating publication redefines what a dictionary can be.

PLEASE REBOOT YOUR SYSTEM / 2020
PLEASE REBOOT YOUR SYSTEM is a simulation and proposal for the perpetual accumulation of unused matter in physical and virtual spaces. All said spaces – including living areas, personal storage, and hard drives – are to be endlessly populated with objects, memories, and data. During periods of prolonged disengagement, ambient processes will generate a buildup of the useless and forgotten.
This program attempts to visualize and replicate that clutter. If the simulation is left to run indefinitely, it will continue to instantiate countless quantities of objects, hoarding all of the remaining resources in virtual memory until it can no longer operate.
THE SPACES BETWEEN BODIES / 2020
A series of generative code experiments developed as a culmination of learnings from Recreating the Past, taught by Zach Lieberman at the School for Poetic Computation.
Using openFrameworks and data from the CMU Graphics Lab Motion Capture Database, I created these code sketches to visualize the differential spaces that connect bodies in motion.
WHAT’RE YOU DOING? / 2020
WYD? (What’re You Doing?) is an intimate gathering hosted by NAVEL where communities can share, talk about, and make inquiries on current research topics. On Sunday, October 11, NAVEL partnered with Tiny Tech Zines to feature Maya Friedman, Rudy Falagán, & Kengchakaj Kengkarnka as guest speakers. Hosted virtually, participants and visitors discussed work-in-progress and research ideas for topics such as remote care and telehealth, technology dependence in the age of COVID, decolonizing Thai sound culture, and the intersections of identity, health, and internet culture.
