This project was the result of an exploration into an alter ego that was discovered in a weekend workshop lead by Silas Munro. As part of this conceptual design project, we were tasked with building a fictitious persona that amplifies, undermines, or rediscovers an aspect of ourselves.

She wanders, walks, and bikes through the urban fabric—documenting her findings along the way.
