Narrative is an essential part of design. It tells our story. It helps us to navigate through space. It intrigues us. It bonds us. Graphic designers use text and image to tell stories. In these relationships the equation is changed to 1+1=3. For this festival we will showcase a collection of the students’ work that addresses the general idea of wellness. The work consists of several series of photographs from a narrative photography class in the design department. The students were given the quote, “The part can never be well unless the whole is well.” by Plato, and charged to create a series that explores the idea of wellness using tropes such as synecdoche and metaphor.

Tiffany is a photographer, graphic designer, filmmaker and educator. When she is not designing, in the classroom, or tending to her young son, you can find her wandering through antique shops with her family in pursuit of vintage still and film cameras and macabre children’s books. She also enjoys dabbling in amateur music composition when she can find the time.
Tiffany holds a BFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University in photography with a focus on narrative, artist books. At the Rhode Island School of Design she earned her MFA in graphic design with an emphasis on digital media, while fulfilling a teaching fellowship.
