WHO Fall 2014, 2D Mixed Media Mirror, Cardboard, and Digital Print 20” x 3” x 6” View full documentation here.

It started out as a simple question. What does it mean to be an American? I took this question and more questions came to me. Who am I? What is my identity? The broken pieces of mirror help the viewer interact with the piece. Passing by you will be confronted with the question and your refection. This work helps the viewer not only appreciate their own identity but also the identity of those around them. I incorporated photo-manipulated images of myself to show the inability to be able to pin point who I am. wynn

I AM BLACK BOOK Fall 2014, 2D Mixed Media Digital Illustration and Print 11” x 17” Book, 14 pages View full documentation here.

This project pushed me outside of my comfort zone when exploring my identity. I decided to dig deeper into my identity as an African-American. I was questioned many times last semester about how I define myself. I decided it was time to stop brushing the question off and take it seriously. The cover book starts off as “i lack” and transitions into I AM BLACK. The images are from textures found on my family members bodies. The story talks about the struggles of being African American, yet it is also an honor. wynn

The chocolate bar has a “bam in your face slogan” and strong typography to follow through with this theme. wynn

OURGLASS Spring 2015, Digital Art & Animation 3D Print, Plastic 3.5” x 3.5” x 7”

This 3D Print was created through Maya and modeled based on my hands. This model speaks on the idea of time and how we can never quite have a “hand”le on it. We initially have control but the time always seems to slip out of our hands and is lost forever. Therefore we need to be very careful and make sure we use all of our time in a purposeful way. wynn

There is a sickle cell shape that guides you through the info, it’s rough like the information, yet simple enough for the viewer to follow as they learn the facts. wynn

DON’T YOU GET WEARY Fall 2014, Video Art Protest Sign and .MOV Video Click here to view video. 03:00

This project is both a video installation and a performance piece. It shows a digital video projection of the progression of protest signs, on top of a blank protest sign that I’m holding. This project highlights the digital use of the millennial generation in the way it was recorded on a cell phone and the continuing stand for justice from the time of the Civil Rights Movement with the MLK audio. My dark silhouette makes it easy to visualize anyone standing there in my place. wynn

UP THE CREEK RAW BAR Spring 2015, Typography 1 (Revised) Digital Print 13.5” x 11.5”

This restaurant is a very fun pet-friendly and family-friendly place where you can eat outside by the creek.

The clean and simple typography merged with the playful seafood vectors help you understand it’s a casual place but you could still go for special occasions like a good first date, anniversary, birthday, or maybe family is in town. wynn




NON-INFOGRAPHIC Fall 2014, Net Art Digital Illustration 1250 px. x 11285 px. Click here to view in full.

For this project I surveyed 10 people, I asked them what they would like to learn about before they died. I gathered minimal information about each of the request and I connected them visually. I want to prove that you don’t have to have the typical infographic to communicate and connect people. The passion to learn can be used to connect us all. The graphic is long and endless just like our need for knowledge. wynn
