Design intervention held in major laundromats in New York’s East Village to return to people their lost sock. A lonely, sock-addicted washing machine decided to make amends to all the laundry-doers he had hurt eating their socks. The walking washing machine offered people a single sock, in a package lovingly screenprinted with his story, his apologies and 11 things a person can do with a single sock.
In collaboration with Camille McMorrow. Illustrations by William Wehbé.

A mood-elevation experiment inspired by Daniel the doorman of the building I live in. I designed for him a set of 100 letterpressed cards that he would give to any stranger who returned back his smile. Each card has a unique password that can be entered on a special website where people drop a pin on the location they received the card in, creating an ever-evolving map of how far Daniel’s single smile can travel and be contagious.
