Heavy Has Debt

For Phoebe Washburn's Faulconer Gallery installation in the summer of 2003, she recycled pieces used from a previous installation. Washburn created a 14-foot tall and 95-foot long curved wall using only small cardboard pieces, drywall screws, and the help of volunteers. To Washburn, her art breaks down the elements of construction to the most basic form. In her words, the process and completed object is so dumb - yet hopefully something amazing emerges from it. 2003.

Web Audit

While we were spending a lot of time on the back-end of our web management, our site grew, organically, freely, and not necessarily coherently. So we decided to take the next, long overdue step: to look what the actual user experience. Normally, people are scared of the audits and the consequences they might bring. We were different. We were begging for our audit. We wanted someone with hands on, real world experience to look at our site and the ways we use it.
