We are Think-RAD

 We are a collective of artists, architects, anthropologists, photographers & cinematographers, and filmmakers. We are looking to tell authentic stories of the existing. We believe that in order to tell a story, we must listen first and grow together with whoever’s story we are telling. This is our public demonstration. 

R= Re-Discovery | A= Adaptive | D=Developing (Growth from the Existing)

Somos un colectivo de artistas, arquitectos, antropólogos, fotógrafos y cinematógrafos y cineastas. Estamos buscando contar historias auténticas de lo existente. Creemos que para contar una historia, primero debemos escuchar y crecer junto con la historia de quien sea que estemos contando. Esta es nuestra manifestación pública.

R = Re-descubrimiento | A = Adaptativo | D = Desarrollo (Crecimiento a partir de lo existente)

Vulnerability as Design Tool.

Not an experience or space of utopia, for those are imaginary, but it is where vulnerability of the existing both programmatically + physically occurs for the benefit of the community. Using the extroverted programatic resources + materials from the original cell, vulnerability creates a space from the existing, that is located in left over spaces or both semi-public & public spaces, stitching the community with place of social exchange.

Whittier Cafe Portraits

In 2018 I started think-rad by setting up impromptu photo studios in public spaces. It gives me a chance to meet new people in Denver, connect, exchange ideas and take their portrait. I am using this mobile, photo studio as a place of social exchange, I am connecting and use vulnerability to grow and be part of the fabric that creates Denver.
