MA work

Reading is an important way for the general population in many societies to access information and gain understanding. It is a means of acquiring knowledge and expanding one’s mind. Unfortunately, people are illiterate in many parts of the world. Even those who are literate have not have necessarily established good reading habits. My project attempts to create design interventions that will change people’s reading habits and access to reading material.

When you read, you think. With the challenges presented by the near future, the world could really use more thinkers.
