Masters of Science in Surface Imaging Thesis Exhibition 2019 The Head and the Heart


At the culmination of my time in the Masters of Science in Surface Imaging program at Philadelphia University I was tasked with designing an exhibition at the prestigious Center for Architecture in Philadelphia. The concept for my show was The Head and the Heart. The arts and technology are sometimes seen as two opposing, irreconcilable forces. My aim was to explore that opposition and attempt to break down the barrier – using traditionally harsh, technical and masculine processes to create an organic and feminine collection.
