Project: The Sound of Batticaloa
Brendy (he/him) is a first year graduate student of Collaborative Design at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon. He plays drums, keyboard, and guitar, and plays/writes for local Portland band, 2nd Base. He also writes and records solo as FeatherCrest. A lifelong visual artist, he is now taking on digital art, through posters, data visualizations, and iconography/logos. Leading into thesis year, he is planning to use his affinity to sound, humans and nature to delve into the realm of noise pollution– specifically around how Portland residents in the BIPOC, lower income and houseless communities are disproportionately effected by sound pollution through systematic shortcomings in local legal codes.
He’s also a distance runner addicted to hot sauce.
