My work is nothing more than an attempt to uncover the surprising or the surreal undersides of everyday life. Because my practice involves collecting, tagging and cataloguing, I have often been compared to a natural scientist – specifically, a lepidopterist. Some of the places I've exhibited include The Contemporary Jewish Museum, the Google Headquarters, Les Rencontres D'Arles, Fotomuseum Antwerpen, La Gaîté Lyrique (Paris), the Lishui Photography Festival (China), Apexart (NY), and East Wing (Dubai). I've also been featured in TIME Magazine's LightBox, The Atlantic, The Economist, WIRED, and a couple of Gestalten books. I've been an artist in residence at Recology SF (the dump), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Palo Alto Art Center, and Facebook, and will soon be in residence at the Internet Archive. I teach internet art and digital/physical design at Stanford. I would spend 80% of my life in a library if I could. I am a Bay Area native/captive.
