Encounter: Meeting Points on Buffalo Bayou
UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON GRAPHIC DESIGN AND CREATIVE WRITING PROGRAMS
Encounter: Meeting Points on Buffalo Bayou (April 7, 2019) was a collaborative project with students from the University of Houston Graphic Design and Creative Writing Programs. This one-day event featured site-specific, text-based installations at six locations in Buffalo Bayou East. Using the sites as inspiration and vehicles for content, the students created large-scale typographic/text-based messages/stories that were activated and animated. The installations expressed interpretations of the history, economy, resilience, culture, and community values of the East Sector neighborhoods as they relate to the bayou and green spaces. Encounter won a 2019 SEGD Global Design Award in the Public Installation category.
