Amulets for Introverts

Amulets For Introverts are single egg-shaped objects each made by machine, hand, and nature – all designed to give shy people social super powers. Some of them even include smaller objects trapped inside: freshwater pearls, seeds and even the artist’s own baby teeth. Given a set P := {p1, …, pn} of sites, a Voronoi Tessellation is a subdivision of the […]

Shark Tank Approved

  Producer Taylor Dunn invited me to ABC studios  to give a short one-minute pitch about my technology consulting business to Barbara Corcoran and Robert Herjavec from Shark Tank.

I believe strongly in the concept of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math). Artists have always been innovators and inventors.

The Greening 209

The Greening: 209 evokes different moments in time: present, future, and past. In the U.S. a house or other building may last a generation or more. The systems we design to guide us as a society outlive us all, though they are not permanent either.  How do we know if the structures we put in […]

AUP project, E-Flux, Art Basel

Agency of Unrealized Projects Unlike unrealized architectural projects, which are frequently exhibited and circulated, unrealized artworks tend to remain unnoticed or little known. But perhaps there is another form of artistic agency in the partial expression, the incomplete idea, the projection of a mere intention?
