My Senior Thesis at Portland State University
File Under: Environmental Design, Design Research,

Interface was my thesis project at Portland State University. This work is an analysis of the internet art subgenre known as Vaporwave. The subgenre targets the idea of luxury and the aspirational fantasies of material wealth imprinted in our cultural memory and synthesizes these concepts in a dreamlike pastiche. The thesis presentation was two-fold, first the Interface site which houses the writing portion of the project and the exhibit - an immersive art experience. I created a full exhibition as a way to allow my fellow students the ability to explore a Vaporwave world in physical space. In this portion of the project I sourced props, created sculptural pieces, created original imagery, curated existing imagery, andused lighting and music design to create the immersive space.
