CAUSTICS is a show about focusing, functioning at the fringe of graphic design when practiced as an art form. Installed both on-sight in the gallery and off-sight around Princeton’s campus, CAUSTICS served as a culmination of work in crowd-sourced typographic exploration and ephemeral documentation. This show worked with principles of time, iteration, and data.

The gallery installation was on view from February 25–March 2 in the Nulu (Lewis Arts Complex) Hurley Gallery. Installed work included a worn zip tie calendar, compressed orange peels, a projected Dancing O, a day-based, custom soundtrack, and a transported studio space. Light shards served as off-site work, with corresponding circulating posters spatially identifying the shards' locations.

This work served in fulfillment of Princeton Visual Arts Department's senior thesis requirement.
