This Area is for Reflection, Prayer & Meditation

This is an Area for Reflection, Prayer and Meditation is an installation, publication & workshop displaying typography from the Philippines at a highly traffic transitionary corridor at RISD (a highly Westernized institution).

It is an ode to how within a letterform a colonized country found a space to reinvent, re-examine, and reflect. Within the letterform they found markings that strengthen their communities in the face of oppressive systems. 

Displayed & distributed at 30 N Main, PVD, RI from 2020–2021.
