Utility Boxes
Pattern For Kono
at Telegraph and 21st, “Pattern for KONO” brings an european-style decorative floral pattern - reminiscent of interior domestic and feminine realms - to the street. Hand stenciled to mimic wall paper the pattern depicts the rose of sharon or mugunghwa (hibiscus syriacus), the national flower of South Korea; the meskel daisy (bidens pachyloma), from the mountains of Ethiopia representing renewal and the new year; and the coast live oak (quercus agrifolia), which sustained the Ohlone.

Be Present
Created soon after the slaying of Michael Brown the “Utility Box” with “Hands up donʼt Shoot,” a stack of gift boxes, and “bojagi” (Korean cloth wrapped gift”), is a visual prayer that folks utilize the gift of being present to counter unconscious bias.
