Activities

Images from interview projects

Arts Journalism

I developed Border Patrol, a New Music interview program, for American Public Media, and Strange Angels, an Arts interview broadcast for KBeach Radio. In over 100 interviews I have spoken with a wide spectrum of contemporary thinkers, ranging from former NEA Chairperson Dana Gioia, to Nobel Laureate Francis Crick, and many others.

Curatorial Projects

Using a range of new media technologies: websites, blogs, social platforms, and virtual worlds, I have organized over 100 virtual art gallery, installation, and performance projects with students and colleagues.
 

sample images from projects featuring robots vis-a-vis corporeality

Robot Artworks

I have created and exhibited visual art ranging from fractal portraits, to multi-screen video installations, to robotic artworks including robotic “artists” who draw, give spiritual advice, and pursue their own search for the spiritual. These works are contemplations on our quest for the spiritual in a machine age.
 

Image of data from sample Location Sensation recordings

Location / Sensation

In this ongoing series of explorations of Locations and the Sensations found there, I cross geographic space with numerous remote sensing tools to record both the perceptible, and for humans, imperceptible phenomenology of the space. Recording images, sound, particulate matter, temperature, wind, humidity, pressure and radio frequency spectral analysis of a series of locations, I presents the world we exist in but do not perceive, either because we have no sensitivity to given phenomena, or conversely, because as with light, we have such a wide sensitivity range, that it is difficult to perceive actual levels separate from the context of our cultural experience.
