He is particularly interested in applying artistic practices to structures of knowledge, creating an open, accessible, participatory “avant-garde of thought.” Recent experiences he’s created include: “Art is _____” at the Phillips Collection (with WE ARE SCIENCE!) and “The Kitchen for Improvised Knowledge” for the Umami Festival’s Anarchy in the Kitchen event. Upcoming experiences include an interactive game for the Transmodern Festival (with Lauren Bender) and an exhibition of ephemeral photography entitled One Hour Photo, at the American University Museum at Katzen Arts Center.
