Carry-on Feb '09 (c)

Inspired by African tribes (namely the Samburu people) who wear accessories and jewelry to show their history. As a result we created a modular pouch necklace which can be assembled in numerous ways and contain a variety of objects meaningful to us and representative of our own history.

Keri Mullin

Hearts Apr '10 (c)

A game in which the instructions are contained within fused plastic bags in the shape of a heart. The tasks are meant to bring a bit of unexpected joy/feel good vibes to the receiver who then must themselves complete the "mission". As a result, a never-ending game is played in hopes to spread some happiness and reduce negative feelings in the world.
