Rave cafe is an iterative physical / digital art project that manifested from a collective of ravers. It explores ways of connecting outside of social media through a chat room, site, and event series focused on building intentionality and stimulating the creative process. The collective began to coalesce through a 2015 road trip to Detroit and during 2020 my partner, Lauren Brady, and I cultivated the ideas that led to designing & building a site. It's built with Nuxt and plays around w/ CSS animations, gradients, & lots of mix-blend-mode :) I've sprinkled in my photography throughout. Making this has opened myself up to the vulnerable & satisfying nature of creating and inhabiting a vision with others.
