Florida Stretchers

During the summer of 2019, I filmed, wrote, and documented the creation of an aluminum stretcher-bar system and published the work as an educational resource at FloridaStretchers.org. The video and 3D Modeling are also briefly documented in my portfolio here:

Reciprocidad Andina

In December of 2018, I completed an internship with artist Cesar Cornejo. Throughout the Fall we collaborated on a project and the work led to a culminating event at the Creative Time Summit in Miami. Cornejo's project was titled Reciprocidad Andina.
