the illuminator

The Illuminator is a collaborative political art project which was created in the context of Occupy Wall Street. Conceptually we are a counter-spectacle tactical media machine, materially we are a group with a van and a huge projector. One of my roles in the group is to develop open source tools for us and anyone […]

tax deductible expenses

Tax Deductible Expenses is a performance piece that transforms mundane purchases into tax deductible expenses by performing and recording the act of consumption. In this way, an artist could theoretically write off her purchases in totality. It’s intended as a criticism of corporate tax dodging, but also a potential prefigurative future tactic. All the trips […]

Gallery visitors are invited to contribute by writing a protest sign, inserting it into the scanner, then see an avatar holding their sign march across the screen.

The incongruous elements of humor, violence, confusion, and collective action which find unlikely intersections […]

We have so far performed three iterations of the show, first at the Chain Theater, and the second and third at Lincoln Center. I created the interactive/visual components of the show with Alex Reeves. We […]

238, green river

238 is a collection of work I produced during a residency in Green River, Utah. Flag/Land I spent some time trying to think through my feelings on American nationalism while in Green River. On July 4th, I felt the presence of patriotism in a way that has become unfamiliar to me since leaving my conservative […]
