On the Impulse to Notate assembles an array of dialogic encounters. Composed in fragments — written and collected, designed and curated — this catalog resists linear narrative formulas to favor an open poetic syntax.

Here, the designer relies on her propensity to notate, aggregate, and persistently recompose.

She materializes language that promotes movement toward knowledge and craft in conversation.

She reads and translates stories spatially, frequently shifting their frames.
