Platform Project (curation, writing + editing)

In June 2012, I participated in Platform, a collaboratively produced publication authored by the participants of the SVA summer design writing intensive, guided by Mimi Zeiger and with design by Neil Donnelly. Platform explored Twitter as an alternative platform for design writing.

Over two weeks in June we visited many sites — public spaces, design studios, galleries — around New York City both on our own and for the SVA program and conducted a dialogue on Twitter about place and public space. In the end, we edited our more than 1,000 tweets down to 68, organized into four themes — Locating, Contrast, Personas, and In Between — that were indicated in the final publication by type, background, and paper color.
