The London poster series aims to visualize the vernacular and political landscape of London. The city is known for its obvious characteristics that define tourist culture.

This book is a collection of three essays by authors who question several institutions of knowledge including the power of language, the validity of art criticism and its relationship to beauty, and art education.
Neighborways Design is an organization that seeks to improve safe residential streets in urban areas. Neighborways are designed for low volumes and speeds for auto traffic, where children can play and bicycle and pedestrians are given priority. They are usually one, sometimes two blocks away from major streets and provide extended connections between neighborhoods, schools, squares, and parks. This concept is not new. In other cities they are called neighborhood greenways, bicycle boulevards, or bike/walk streets. The goal is to connect schools, parks and squares in Somerville using existing low-traffic streets.
This was designed in collaboration with a small student team for design center.
This is a page from a publication dedicated to my class trip abroad to Central Saint Martins. Conceptually it was inspired by the individual moments that were part of my London experience.
Fragments is a series of 3 zines. The idea behind each artifact is to perceive/observe a place through different approaches: through the eye of a camera, hand drawn, and the last a screen print of found textures.
Turning to cast-off images from books, magazines, comics, catalogues, and printed detritus, John Schultz’s work investigates and transforms common symbols and images from the “low” end of visual culture via chance operations, cut-ups, and an ironic visual language, conveying a sense of loss and psychic anxiety that reflects the uncertainty of memory and contemporary life. This is an event poster that embraces the dichotomy of Shultz's printmaking/chance-making practice.

An exploration of water has developed into my Senior thesis project. While still on-going the exploration aims to show how environmental issues have cultural and artistic components, in addition to the scientific and political.

I see this book as a visual dialogue with the city of London. During my stay I endlessly collected various printed material as a way of familiarizing myself with the culture of the city. The nature of collage engaged a reflective and destructive process to occur as memories began taking physical form and others were left discarded. Curating memory lacks order and invites spontaneity and intuition to lead.
Ben Nicholson's excerpt from Collage Making (found on the front and back cover) guided my exploration of memory through the lens of an architect. Memories seek tactile sensation by emulating the form and structure of skylines, maps, and textures.

The sun has always been a symbol for kings and queens who like to give themselves props for their stunning powers. Throughout the play, Shakespeare uses the sun as a metaphor for young Henry the V promised transformation from a wild young prince to a majestic monarch. The eclipse encompasses this idea of transformation and passing time. As the sight of an eclipse is only temporary, eventually the sun emerges from behind the moon and the blinding light is too great to bear witness to.
