Ambient Health

In response to the 2012 Microsoft Design Expo theme: “Information In My World,” Ambient Health is the product of a quarter-long engagement in which students were asked to form interdisciplinary teams, consider real human needs, and respond with a user experience prototype and presentation that communicates their design solution.

An exercise in Service Design, at the heart of Ambient Health is a cloud-based application that bridges the gap between doctors, patients, clinical records, and personal contextual data. Ambient Health promotes preventative healthcare while bringing to our current system of curative healthcare all of the benefits of the information age.

Special thanks to the doctors, nurses, researchers and everybody else that generously contributed their time, expertise, experience and point of view.

Origin

In response to the proliferation of data, devices, sensors and connectivity that leads to overwhelming and cluttered file systems. As a complement to the strained desktop/file folder metaphor that dominates the digital world today, Origin organizes data based on contextual markers such as location, persons present, related data and a myriad of other markers available.

In response to the 2011 Microsoft Design Expo theme: “Get Connected, Stay Connected,” Origin is the product of a quarter-long engagement in which students were asked to form interdisciplinary teams, consider real human needs, and respond with a user experience prototype and presentation that communicates their design solution.

Ecco

A book of photography, shot and hand-bound in Rome.

Excerpt from the forward: This book is an homage to the other Rome. We stand in wonder of these architectural triumphs, but we forget about the people that suffered under the weight of their accomplishment. Rome is a paradox. An ode to the hubris, tragedy and grace that is mankind. This book is dedicated to the beauty that exists in the nooks and crannies.
