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.
I do design because it encompasses so much of what I enjoy. Design requires investigative research, critical thinking, experimenting with mediums, and tinkering. It requires making smart observations, inventing useful objects, and creating images that capture imaginations and elicit emotions. I want people to feel curious 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.
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.
