What is black design.

One thing that I believe has given me answers is that I am seeing my own practice evolve as a designer. That being said, I also learned that making things that evolve and use multiple mediums of creation is critical for design thinking. I believe that black design has to contain these three important elements: Story, Form, Extraction.

The quilts were a formal element in communicating a story, an experience and a life. It is about the sharing of information in a different unpredictable format.

The videos acted as an external element in this project. A visual that exposes process and takes more information and molds it into a form that is different from typical design methods like paper and ink. It is something that is ever evolving with moving imagery.
