HAY! Chicago Submission for the ACTIVATE! Chicago Competition” Chanel Dehond, Sydney Truesdale, Stephen Wenzel 2013 digital rendering.
Chanel’s portfolio varies dramatically, as it manifests itself through an agglomeration of mediums.  However, as she playfully explains, her incentive remains consistent, “I guess, in all of my work I am attempting to provoke a conversation… by arousing a tinge of uncomfortableness in everyone. I’d hope that my conceptions be a-sort-of catalyst for new conventions of interaction and – like alcohol – act as a social lubricant.”
IS THERE SOMETHING IN MY TEETH? Phone App Design” Chanel Dehond 2013 digital rendering.
Chanel is working with Sydney Truesdale on this PULP Paper Mistletoe installation for the event, as well as the short film titled, Waterloo Arch. 392 Urban Precedent 8. BARBICAN_Sans Narrator.  She hopes that the PULP Paper Mistletoe might unleash a few metaphorical Cupid Arrows.
