Billboard Art Projects
In April 2012, Time Capsule was created in collaboration with the San Francisco based artist Michele Guieu. We contributed this piece to the invitational component of the Billboard Art Project, an exhibition of visual and sound art utilizing an LED billboard and radio transmission.
In 2010, two series of images, Only Passing Through and Upon a Fluent Route were included in a 24-hours of uninterrupted, noncommercial series of images contributed by artists were displayed on both sides of the LED b
Sampled from various contemporary video games, Samples is a color study of blood as a representation of success in these games.
Is That All?
2008, Slide Installation with two projectectors and 160 35-mm slides
Is that all? is an installation of two alternating slide projections. The slides are projected adjacent to or facing each other, either on two different walls or on two projection screens. The gathered images are edited and made into slides for each of the two slide carousels. Each slide image is culled from a different source, but all feature subtitles. The presence of the subtitles creates a previously absent dialogue bet
2006-2008, Digital collage, variable dimensions
Interrogation Mark involves gathering both violent images from the current war in Iraq and pastoral images from various lifestyle magazines and books. In the tradition of collage, the images are digitally combined in a way that suggest that dread, violence, and general pathos underpin popular images promoted in our culture.

2004-2005, projected slide installation with 80 35mm slides on a carousel
approx. 12 minutes (9 seconds per slide)
Verging deals with the peculiarly photographic tension of the still image. I am the editor of a group of quiet, decisive moments that are appropriated from films. The perspective of the camera in every image is similar (from behind a lone woman pausing within an architectural space or landscape), and throughout it serves to amplify a tense moment preceding an unknown decision or
2004, video installation,40 minutes
Loom is a silent video that is made up from found images, mostly from classic American horror and suspense films. The static images of empty spaces or architecture appear frozen or still, as if they are photographs. The still-like image is then subtly interrupted by shadow play of some forms of human presence. Each segment is dramatically slowed down, so that time will enter as an important participant in the viewing experience. The composed and subtle mov
