I am a progressive graphic designer concentrating his explorations on accelerated visual perception, design systems and aesthetical experience tied together through practical research in history and philosophy. My guiding desire is to map the unmappable.

As a designer I have started my road heavily interested in exploring identity, typography and print. Through my research and visual explorations in typography and form at some point in time there was a shift and the questions of accelerated visual perception, data visualization, new media, and interactivity started to emerge as dominant points of curiosity and interest. My artistic practice involves digital, analog, installation, video, and interactive. Through individual and mix explorations I am able to push the boundaries of creativity and experiment with visual representation of the invisible and temporal.

I engage the question of enticing shifts in perception and the influences of contemporary society and culture on our visual cognition. Some of the prominent questions occupying my conscious, and probably the subconscious are: Do we conceive the present world more intensely due to the increase in the speed of image delivery? Do we visually sense more data today then we have in the past?

My current explorations are heavily inspired by writings of Paul Virilio on accelerated
visual perception and Michael Chion’s claims that the eye is more spatially adept while the ear is more temporally adept. With the guiding principle of being able to see more if we are presented with more data and at a higher speed of delivery I have been exploring narrative sequencing and visualizing temporal events in both analog and digital form. To better understand and represent the concept of accelerated perception I have visualized the story of a free fall while parachuting to provide a narrative and visual explanation of the concept.

Currently I am developing a narrative of my life by the year as the body of content for
creating a spatial visual construct for the viewers to experience and explore a life–time over few minutes through type, form, animation, and video. Through careful integration of image driven journal elements, vinyl type, and video segments my desire is to provide the viewers with an environment to explore the narrative sequences.

My desire is to explore perception and speed through my research and find creative and imaginative ways of presenting my findings. The goal is to investigate the ability to visually communicate at different speeds, and to create different levels of cognition through the factors of acceleration and construction of messages that raise consciousness, sensitivity and conviction.

I am fascinated in visualizing data through new media, and exploring different levels of interactivity between the viewer and the point of interface. Further more it is my strong desire to find new conduits to channel my research and my comprehensive knowledge of the canonical graphic design principals and practices. This is achievable through both my artistic and academic practices.

In all my research, teaching, and art practice I strive towards excellence, progress,
experimentation, and future enhancement of my skills, and finding ways to inspire fellow artists and my students. I would like to further expand on my research and continue my work both independently and through an academic institution. This way I will be able to fulfill my academic practice and ignite interest in others Read Less

I focus my teaching practice equally on both the individual and the group; my goal is to enable my students to function as both strong solo creators and as dynamic team participants. This is achievable through diverse assignments, ranging from complex individual projects to group initiatives requiring utilization of research skills, critical thinking and conceptualization, effective verbalization, and systematic organization. By utilizing my diverse academic experiences and knowledge of the field, I would like to help students reach a deeper understanding of the history and theory of graphic design while providing them with an opportunity to express themselves and critically engage social, economical and political topics through both analog and digital media. I welcome the opportunity to develop and teach graphic design studio and core/elective courses while advancing and diversifying the research, creative, critical, and collaborative potential of both the students and the Department.

In my teaching practice I am committed to transforming traditional design curriculum in order to expand the level of understanding of core and advanced theoretical principals, while utilizing historical and contemporary knowledge to enhance the learning experience. My curriculum includes the use of digital resources ranging from educational videos and tutorialsto the introduction of new software, providing students with an opportunity to experience and diversify their visual, theoretical and practical understanding of graphic design. Furthermore, it is my strong belief that students need to embrace historical and contemporary visual culture references, in addition to critical and theoretical writing. My goal is to both enrich and enhance the creative potential of my students, and open their eyesto new media, tools, and considerations when it comes to graphic design. Read Less
