Tactile Photography

In collaboration with Venezuelan artist Mariliana Arvelo I created this series of tactile photographic prints as part of a project about the deafblind community in Boston, called "Senses". The works are produced through a CNC laser etching process that removes the top portion of the wood. The darker the image is a any particular point, the more wood is removed by the laser at that point. The result is a photographic relief that can be touched as well as seen...

Chocolate Fashion Show

Chocolate Fashion Show
If designers currently showing on a catwalk in New York aren't happy with their creations, they can always eat them. The 2005 Chocolate Fashion Collection kicked off in New York Tuesday night, featuring a show of 18 brands where clothes or accessories were made of chocolate. Profits from the fashion show are donated to charity.
