|SOCIAL MEDIA PERFORMANCE >
What began as a one-off parody of the New Museum's titular exhibition, these images of found objects soon became a love letter to the abject and ephemeral, privileging the feedback loop formed between our fleeting contemplation of such objects and the art we later make in the studio. Shot with a smart phone and distributed via Twitter and Flickr (ca.2008), unmonumental has since grown into a visual archive of 'monumental' proportions. ARTICLE: INVOLUNTARY SCULPTURES.... unmonumental is now available as a hardback edition andas an ebook with video (2013).
This social media performance took place over the course of three weeks (June 19 - July 6, 2011) in New York City's Soho district. Simultaneously performed and documented on Twitter and Tumblr, #LostLibrary examines acts of exchange that are deeply rooted in our material world, contrasting electronic with traditional conventions of ownership and sharing. #LostLibrary was included in the exhibition Bibliomania at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey (2011).
KITCHEN STUDIO (2010)
Celebrating the synergy between making art and cooking, Kitchen Studio spontaneously offered (through Twitter and Tumblr), documentation of culinary processes and painterly practices conducted in tandem in an old factory loft on Mercer Street. This project was later realized as an installation for the exhibition With Food in Mind at the Center for Book Arts in NY (2010), curated by Nicole J. Caruth. IMAGES //// ARTICLE IN C MAGAZINE
