My recent projects experiment with the subject of time: its construction, perception, and consumption as both a cultural product and natural phenomenon. Projects resolve as multi-media installations, collaborative events, pop-up shows, and web archives, and incorporate video, sound, and digital imaging. In addition to my own studio practice, PlayLaborPlay (playlaborplay.com) is an ongoing collaborative and curatorial project that emphasizes site-specificity and place-making. Our most recent event took place in a warehouse and contained six floors of site-specific sound installations that ranged from electronic composition, to sound sculpture, to performance. Other events have taken place in box trucks, office suites, galleries, basements, and public pavilions. My career so far has been spent teaching media arts, photography, video, and various other studio arts at high schools such as Kingswood Oxford and Loomis Chaffee, as well as building curricula that integrates visual culture and interdisciplinary and time-based practices into traditional art education. My work has been shown in video festivals, such as MUX: Asheville, NC and Expanded Cinema, Dallas, TX, as well as in various sites in western MA, such as the Florence Night Out, POD installation project, and the University Museum of Contemporary Art, Take a Seat!group exhibition.
