he purpose of Food Store(y) is to bolster civil society via camaraderie and communication. Imagine a free app like Tinder-for-bartering with a focus on exchanging food for stories and vice -versa. We want participants to get closer to neighbors instead of feeling more isolated- and all by facilitating the exchange of stories (personal, journalistic, historical) for food.
Recently I found out that the way I experience time is a form of synesthesia. Previously I always assumed this cross-modal perception only happened to the rare few who could see music or hear colors. Now I am happy to be collaborating with two synesthetes: Geri Hahn who sees music and other sounds very vividly, and Dr. Svetlana Rudenko, a neuroscientist, also a synesthete, and composer. I have created this animation “Synaesthesia edit01” to describe the motions and colors that Geri sees when she listens to Dr. Rudenko’s Dancing Textures composition. Read more

There are often subtle indicators in our landscape which can be interpreted to reveal what divides or unifies us. In the series Due North, I reflect on my time as an artist in residence at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin home in Wisconsin. While there I found myself a part of two communities at odds with each other: the utopian Fellowship made of up Mr. Wright’s apprentices and their architecture school, and the nearby town of Spring Green, whose elders could still recall in great detail the unpaid debts and bad behavior Mr. Wright left in his wake. I couldn’t help but be influenced by this divide in the maps I created this past year which were made from interviews with Fellowship members and other videos I created during my stay.
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 place are working? How long does the long view need to be if we are going to plan accordingly? It’s time to remodel.
