Pratt Institute, Visiting Assistant Professor

Language of Drawing II emphasizes the representation of spatial, material and sensual elements in existing, proposed and remembered environments. The course focuses on using drawing and representation tools and techniques as means to analyze, distill and present complex information and ideas. Students are encouraged to develop and refine a personal representational language, building upon an understanding of graphic conventions. The course emphasizes the clarity and the expressive qualities of graphic communication applied to concepts of interior design.

Clothing production has nearly doubled in the last 15 years. The life span of garments continues to decrease as ‘fast fashion’, the increased rate of clothing sales, continues to saturate the market and set trends in consumption. During the previous projects students’ addressed Housing Works’ strategy to fundraise money for an important cause using the by product and waste of this serious environmental problem. On the other hand, clothing companies are known to burn excess stock to protect their brand, unfair and inhumane production practices, as well as depleting resources and contributing to environmental toxicity. Many companies are attempting sustainable practices, such as garment recycling, but it is estimated that only 1% ever become actual new clothing; the remainder, ultimately, end up in a landfill.

A design/construction investigation is proposed utilizing used discarded garments and fabric destined to a landfill. The Studio has collected fabric for each section. Students may add additional material only in the form of scraps, clothing or garments that were destined to be discarded. Design a sustainable space for a single person to perform a ritual within.
