short bio / intro

In recent work I have been exploring the intersection of spaces of living, and technologies being ‘embedded’ within them. The technologies themselves range from imaging and distribution systems to transport and other infrastructures. I am interested in the thresholds of visibility, distance, administration and doubt that we encounter here.

The projects themselves are an adulterous mix of software-based art, conceptual practices, telematics, early and pre-cinema, site-based performance, and architecture. With this approach I try to bring, often with others, a broad range of thinking: new and old ideas, as well as low-, hi- and no-tech, to "new media " conceptions of virtuality, networks and participation.
