Goldsmith Building, Old Town, Portland
My first assignment for Studio Jelly - to create value in the common space of our floor in the Goldsmith Building in Old Town.

This 800 year old design is a reduced replica of the labyrinth at the Chartres Cathedral, France. After coming up with a lot of terrible ideas, I decided we should replicated a scaled model in the hallway and paint it by hand, the rosette resting in the middle of the floor leading guests directly to our studio door.

Clifton Burt curated a group show for the Portland Trailblazers with over 30 artists at Land Gallery. I submitted an official NBA basketball covered with 7,000 copper-cup sequins and 1 jar of tacky glue. On the ball the numbers 77 are set in Portland Trailblazers colors to commemorate the year they won the NBA World Championship Series.

OVER IT: A collaboration
Our invitation to the gallery opening read:

“Can 18 disparate Portland artists, writers, designers, art directors, fashion designers and illustrators get together and work as a singular unit to make art? Probably not.”

Together we crafted 14 miles of string strung through 2500 eye screws spelling the words:
