my artistic output is shifting towards less collaborative and more physically tangible artifacts, not away from, but subsequent to output that was predominantly tech-based and collaborative as a part of or on behalf of vurv collective.

1 of 30 selfie stations exhibited in the immersive Selfie Gauntlet experience at The Museum of Human Achievement during the 2018 East Austin Studio Tour.Visitors were given the opportunity to take 30 selfies in a row with 30 seconds for each selfie, design by 30 artists. Selfies were intended to only be for individuals (no groups) and the Gauntlet was an all or nothing ordeal. Folks were to take selfies in order from 1 to 30 and post them all at the end of the experience.

An instagram account I started in 2015 to document instances of lonely inanimate objects (effectively waste) that I noticed in urban settings. Over the years this project matured from a comical outlet to document lonely objects discarded in random urban settings to an effort to make note of waste as a by-product of economic activity on a common social channel by anthropomorphizing inanimate, seemingly lonely, discarded objects.
