A Community Chalkboard, 2013
I painted an exterior wall of an abandoned building with chalkboard paint near my home in Mission Hill in Boston. I then invited people to participate by providing instructions, the chalk, and a small table for it (which was quickly stolen).
5 walls with 1 strip of white paint on each
5 paint cans, with labels: Modern White, Minimalist White, Conceptual White, Postmodern White, and Contemporary White
The End - The Final Years: A Brief History of SMFA from 2013–2017, 2013
The End is a comic zine made in collaboration with other SMFA students. It serves as a warning about the plausible dystopian future of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. As most everyone at SMFA was left in the dark about the school's future, all we had left to do was imagine what an unspeakable future would look like.
UPDATE: (Spoilers) Unfortunately, most of what was predicted in our zine came true. We weren't able to save the school. SMFA, due to financial instability caused by failures from the leadership, needed to join with another university in order to avoid closing. Luckily, it did not end up joining with Northeastern University, but instead will be joining with its long-term partner Tufts University. There will be massive layoffs to staff. The school will change forever. However, the (ir)responsible leadership will not be a part of the new joint (ad)venture.

SMFA Disorientation Guides, 2012-2013
In 2012, I and a few other students published our school's first disorientation guide. We continued in 2013, creating the second in the series. Through these guides, we hoped to provide an alternative orientation for both new and returning students. There is a great deal of information that schools, sometimes deliberately and sometimes negligently, does not provide students. We wanted students to have access to all the knowledge orientation did not provide. Specifically, it was to update incoming students on recent changes to SMFA, help students with tips on how to navigate both SMFA and Tufts, provide alternative and radical resources to readers, and inspire dialogue that would ideally lead to action.

SMFA Strategic Plan: A Multimedia Play, 2013
SMFA Strategic Plan: A Multimedia Play is a 3-act play produced by myself and a few other students from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA) as a comment on the school's recently presented Strategic Plan. The three acts were divided, more or less, as so: 1. Presentation; 2. Intermission; 3. Conversation. The first act was created entirely (besides obvious added absurdities) from language from the SMFA Strategic Plan, found here: http://www.smfa.edu/files/Strategic_Plan.pdf . Also, a large part of the play included (and depended on) audience participation. Students, teachers, and staff members were all in attendance. The play was performed in the Grossman Gallery at SMFA during lunch on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 during the student-curated Histories of Now: Space for Dialogue, Art, and Activism exhibition.

What Do You Want?
I wrote the question, "What do you want from your school?" in front of SMFA. I left out pieces of chalk, and encouraged people to respond.
