I received my MFA this spring from Art Center College of Design’s Media Design Practices program. Before graduate school I worked on green infrastructure (green roofs, street-level rain capture), studied human geography at Dartmouth, and spent 18 years in rural Vermont.
Bitfarm was a microventure that bloomed with the growing season in 2012. Its goal was to increase the accessibility of urban gardening through product and information design. The seed packets sold in a number of stores around Brooklyn.
The planting instructions for the packets were designed to be straightforward, clear, and easy to interpret. I wanted potential new gardeners to look at the instructions and think I can do that.
