Molly Groendyke Enos
(Executive Director - Operations & Advocacy) is a licensed Architect in California and Hawaii, with international perspective and a unique engagement in contemporary art practice. She is Principal Architect at Ens_Projects and Director of The Periscope Project. As such, she progressively serves to compliment the greater public as an avid community member, advocate, and mentor for the professional development of young women. Formerly trained in Business Administration and Architecture (B.A. ‘02, M.Arch ‘05), Molly has excelled in merging the macro-political, subjectively aesthetic, and functional organization tenants required to transcend a modern client-service model. Her committee service has been wide and impactful. Molly has contributed her leadership, technical ability, and interpersonal skill-set to the AIA Young Architects Commission through mentorship, the San Diego Architectural Foundation, the AIA San Diego’s Women in Architecture committee, and now recently, the Urban Land Institute Young Leaders.
James A. Enos
(Director - Pedagogy, Policy, & Projects) is an educator, artist and researcher formally trained as an architect with a background in computer information systems and manufacturing. Primarily interrogating the built environment of North American cities, his efforts offer a poignant critique of consumer / client culture and the spatial fallouts of contentious development hierarchies – ultimately presenting critical contributions to a history of theoretical debate on utopianism in architecture, while accounting for the more practical mechanics of policy intervention. Enos has exhibited widely and lectured nationally employing an interdisciplinary methodology that spans conceptual polemics and active responses. He currently serves as Visiting Assistant Professor of Design and Digital Media at The Florida State University in Tallahassee. James holds degrees in technology, architecture, and the arts from Purdue University (B.S), NSAD (M.Arch), and The University of California San Diego (MFA). He is an advocate for the changing nature of public art practice and democratized forms of community development.
Charles G. Miller
(Director - Curation, Programming & Project Development) is an artist, educator and organizer at the Periscope Project. He is currently a guest critic and juror for the fifth year thesis sequence, and teaches a special studio on cinematic media at Newschool of Architecture & Design in San Diego. Chuck’s work explores regional cultural and urban issues via creative and performative research, media, and critical writings. Chuck cofounded campbaltimore: an art / activist collective coordinating for spatial and developmental justice in Baltimore, Maryland in 2005. Since relocating to San Diego from New York City in 2007, Chuck has developed a series of projects that confront and criticize the mythos of Southern California: a landscape rife with spectacular contradictions. Chuck received his BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2004, and his MFA from University of California, San Diego in 2010.
(Facilities & Outreach – Area Leader) operates between the architectural profession, industrial trades, and academia. As an academic, Keith teaches at the Newschool of Architecture & Design at the thesis level. His technical knowledge emerged from his experience in electronics, chemistry, and custom machine / tool development while following his father’s personal practice. This is paired with construction experience in the Southern California region as an Independent Contractor and Journeyman electrician (Dept. of Industrial Relations, CA, No 124093). Keith has participated in the design and permitting of numerous park and school projects in San Diego City. He holds a professional degree in Architecture from NSAD (B Arch) and is an accredited professional with the USGBC (LEED AP).
(Education, Fundraising, and Media – Area Leader) is an artist, social scientist, and educator. She has assisted teaching fifth year undergraduate thesis courses at the New School of Architecture & Design, taught at High Tech High North County, and instructed courses at the Media Arts Center San Diego. Having graduated from the University of California San Diego with majors in International Studies – Economics, and Visual Arts – Media (Film and Video), Andrea is interested in an artistic practice that employs multidisciplinary research and participation to explore urban geographies and the relationships of power in the development of neighborhoods and communities.
Jonathan Barth (Site) received an architecture education at the NewSchool of Architecture & Design where he earned a B.Arch in 2011. Transitioning from a phenomenological focus during school, Jonathan is intrigued by how the forces of policy and capital operate tangentially to shape the built environment, form ideology, and impact cultural identity. At a professional level Jonathan’s interests are directed toward architectural practices and developing industry around alternative concepts of economic growth. Jonathan looks to expand on his interests by abstracting educational environments on interactive aspects of media productions and issue based conversations. Jonathan works as an independent contractor and joins The Periscope Project as an artist and resident to develop a series of investigative (field study) workshops utilizing drawing and architectural skill sets.
David Kim (Support) is an educator, scientist, and practicing artist; he prefers little separation between these roles. With over five years of experience in transgenic botany and medical biochemistry working as a researcher at the Rockefeller Molecular Biology Lab and Scripps Home Health, his science background informs much of his art making process. Additionally, David has over three years of experience instructing biology, chemistry, and math at the high school and collegiate levels, currently with Wells Academics of La Jolla. More recently, David has completed the Interdisciplinary Computing in the Arts program at University of California, San Diego. In his current pedagogical, research, and art making practices, he is most engaged in intersections of the arts and the life sciences, generative design, recursive processes, ecology, and other self-informing systems.
Hannah Powers (Operations) is working towards her BA in Strategic Communications at National University. She was drawn to The Periscope Project for its collaborative spirit and progressive educational programming. She also wanted to be a part of the conversation surrounding the usage of urbanized areas in San Diego. Hannah is interested in the effects of globalization on communities and food sourcing/food sustainability.
