My thesis project at RISD focused on alternative ways of bringing the news to less-than-captive audiences. First, I created outdoor typography installations imploring all who read these messages to read, learn, understand and care about current events. I regularly performed “newsicals,” musical numbers about news headlines. Finally, I made cupcakes with news headlines stuck in them in an attempt to deliver news that was literally sugarcoated and bite-sized. My research and projects were documented in a final book.
