About

I am in transition. or re-transitioning into laboratory interests. now it’s genomics. evidence and artifacts forthcoming in the middle zone between art and design most likely.

But recently I was transfixed by the election nightmare. maybe some of this work is influenced by this period: http://lutherthie.com/photostory/clusterfuck/

Previous work includes a series of psychological experiments or “tests”. props are dummies and puppets, posed in studio, producing photos, paintings and studies for installations. This in a way is a return to a soft sculpture practice I was engaged in prior to turning to critical design with the Acclair and LA Interchange projects, but also a continuance of these strategies to engage the audience in participatory interactions to ask cultural and political questions.

I have presented work at technology conferences, art galleries and museums in the US and Europe and was a spotlight speaker at the Computer Human Interaction conference (CHI 2005) and the Emerging Artist award winner at Zero1/ISEA 2006. Have had exhibitions internationally at Van Abbe Museum and STRP Festival of Art and Technology in The Netherlands and Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Italy.

artist-in-residence at Headlands Center for the Arts and Montalvo Arts Center in California. LA Interchange, a proposal for a real-time memorial (2010) was featured in Leonardo Journal of Art, Science and Technology and ProArts Oakland. Exhibitions in the US include Berkeley Center for New Media, San Diego State University, New Langton Arts, SomArts San Francisco, Southern Exposure, The Garage, The Lab, Steven Wolf Fine Arts and SF Camerawork.

Artwork has been reviewed in various publications including the San Francisco Chronicle, SF Bay Guardian, SF Weekly, Sculpture, ArtNews and the Los Angeles Times.
