Genevieve is an American artist, writer, and educator. Her work falls into the categories of transmedia storytelling, collaborative culture, user-generated contents, and narratology. Her inquires are truth-fictions that cross disciplines. She uses sparse and haunting language to question boundaries wherein agency is relinquished to the individual and choice must argue for or against moral systems, or at least interrogate them.

 
 

design

I am a designer because design encompasses so much of what I enjoy. Design requires collaboration, investigative research, critical thinking, experimenting with mediums, and tinkering. It requires making smart observations, inventing useful objects, and creating systems, symbols, and images that capture imaginations and elicit emotions. I want people to feel curious about and attracted to what I make. In my worldview, we step into an ongoing narrative. Therefore,  I prefer narratives that are not chronologically ordered.

Fascinated with agricultural terracing, these compositions reveal fluid contours, languid lines, layer upon layer placed to build irregular surfaces that resemble archeological digs and terraced architecture. They are earthly explorations that replicate excavations of the human heart and mind.

Former student Olga Vladova created this video in my intermediate design course at SVA. The assignment was to create a typography-based narrative in motion. Olga developed a story about a new office romance. We borrowed a projector, projected her video in a classroom, and filmed it. It hit a corner and two walls, which made an interesting bend in the typography. Olga did a great job with the entire project including the voice over.

I created this hand made book entitled UHDR vs Plaintiff to discuss the problems with "canon" as it applies to contemporary life. While well meaning, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights leaves out persons and groups that fall outside of the authors' sphere.

As designers we are dazzled by new technologies, new thinking, and new trends. We also appreciate fine craftsmanship. As we experiment with new technologies, we need to continue to bring our craftsmanship into each new form.  Our goals are to make learning and working fun, to share our well honed aesthetics with the world around us, and to leave a legacy of beauty and building successful communication.
