1 CLAYBOX: OUTDOOR CONVENTION GARDEN Professor Gale Fulton / “ECO-SPEC-TECH” / Fall 2017

This project capitalizes on the impermanence of materials and events to stage an urban spectacle on a post-industrial vacancy in Knoxville, Tennessee. Beyond the spectacle of the site itself – surrounded by highway infrastructure, light industrial buildings, and a channelized creek, CLAYBOX harnesses the unstable tendencies of ‘ground’, along with discarded materials including glass and cardboard, to create an infrastructure of impermanence.

2 NEW HORIZON: (RE)DEFINING KNOXVILLE’S HORIZONS Professor Gale Fulton / “ECO-SPEC-TECH” / Fall 2017

A recapitulation of Claybox, NEW HORIZONS is a long-term project designed to demonstrate the process of reclaiming and redeveloping the soil to a rehabilitated lush state. In doing so, the project addresses four main issues of post-industrial urban soil: compaction, acidity, toxicity, and displacement of organic matter, this project utilizes mycoremediation and resilient plantings that will pioneer the process of establishing a new ecosystem. New Horizons is an experiment for a new generation of vegetative, fungal, and animal life.

4 HAND-DRAWN SKETCHES 2016-2018

I am comfortable with communicating via hand-drawn sketches. I have displayed a range of works, all drawn from life or as a diagram, to demonstrate my hand drawing skills.
