During this lecture, sponsored by Artists in Context, I'll share different artworks of mine that use tools from Design Research and Human Centered Design. I use these in my art practice to engage topics far removed from my own life experiences—such as gang violence, life-threatening illness, and wedding planning—as well as topics closer to home. I'll explain why they are a natural fit for me, and how they can be valuable resources for those making Socially Engaged Art.

The lecture will take place in the Brant Gallery, which has been repurposed as a studio and research lab for my current in-process project, Strangers & Kin, which explores creativity and makers. Free and open to the public.
