Chaos and Precision is the design practice of Riley Hooker, whose work moves across graphic design, independent publishing and art—with an emphasis on close collaborations with artists and architects.

In 2012 Hooker co-founded the graphic design studio This is our work until disbanding in 2015 to launch Façadomy —an indenepent publishing project which explores paradox and desire as fundamental elements of liberatory thinking. Hooker’s work with queer artist collective House of LaDosha was featured in Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon at the New Museum in New York in 2018. In winter of 2021 Hooker held the technology residency at Pioneer works in Brooklyn. In the spring of 2022 a solo presentation of Hooker’s video and installation work was shown in the exhibition Doing Language: Word Work, curated by Nontsikelelo Mutiti and Egbert Vongmalaithong at the ICA in Richmond, VA where they have also lectured in addition to leading a 24-hour workshop with MFA candidates titled “DEATH WISH.” Hooker’s writing has been featured in PIN—UP Magazine, The Architect’s Newspaper, and the Walker Art Center’s design blog “The Gradient.”
