Travel Rhythm represents my life's travels and places I've called home in a format that is conducive to detecting patterns. Understanding data is difficult yet when information is presented in a visual interpretation, it not only allows the eye to see content clearer, it allows the viewer to recognize trends.

These takeaways can make it easier to implement an adjustment in behavior. I know I want to continue to visit new lands and this visual reiterated that the time is now and the clock is ticking!

This project integrates principles that were learned in courses throughout my Syracuse University education. Two weeks were spent on an ethnographic research trip in Bahía de Caráquez, Ecuador, a developing Eco-City. After raising $2,500 in two months for the cost of the trip, I conducted a large case study to discover how locals solved problems with what was available to them. Thus, I decided the focus for this year long project would be:"Why live simply? Exposing our inefficient ways of living to propose the need for a change in habit."

Why live simply? Exposing our inefficient ways of living to propose the need for a change in habit.

Full versions of the books are available here: VOL.1and VOL.2. The video features my proposal for a step towards a healthier world, Schema, a sustainable way to purchase hair care products. A simple change in habit can go a long way.
