APE Installation – For a week, the lobby of the Harvard Graduate School of Design was transformed with hundreds of plastic ET figurines spelling out the name of an experimental student publication – APE.


In collaboration with Bill Yen and Garrick Jones, the message was simple, APE was not the typical studio publication.

APE was created to challenge the traditional conventions of the design studio culture.


The exhibit was created by using hundreds of plastic ET figures adhered to a wall painted the exact color of the figurines.


By the end of the week, the ET figures could be found scattered throughout the design studios, as students collected pieces as they fell off the wall.
