Soft Ruptures
Publication Design, 2022


My RISD Graphic Design MFA Thesis was based on a project that explored a personal story of Iceland and a volcanic eruption. The book begins with my research and documentation of the project, which became a film, installation, and publication exploring shifting landscapes and family histories.

The book includes documentation of projects made during my time at RISD and interviews with Mindy Seu, Kathleen Sleboda, and Elaine Lopez.
