Yale University

— Financial Report 2008–2009

Typographic Investigations

— Broadsheet
This project explores if a specific typographical landscape—a “topography of type”—exists that is unique to an area and how it could be visualized in digital and printed formats. Can it be a virtual or visual corridor through which one travels to be in a specific place the same way that a child might look at maps to travel to far away places in one’s imagination?

Report on Internet Governance

— Publication
In working with 3 Bridges, Inc. and the Ford Foundation, we designed the publication “Human Rights Are Not a Bug. Upgrading Governance for an Equitable Internet”, which was authored by Niels ten Over. This important publication discusses the need to develop and govern an internet infrastructure that establishes safeguards against harm and inequity by adopting human rights assessments modeled on the UN’s Guiding Principles.
