We just launched the Kickstarter campaign for Gift Horse – a project for the 01SJ Biennial co-commissioned by the San Jose Museum of Art and ZERO1. We are seeking extra funding specifically to construct the sculpture from sustainable materials and also to teach several “build your own virus” workshops.

I just finished writing the software which tracks your emotions using brainwave analysis. From a flashcard-style test, it creates a custom video for each participant from a melange of silent clips such as balloons floating in the sky, a tapping foot and an angry dog. This weekend Flux Factory along with The Metric System will be presenting The Science Fair, (New York), where I will showing After Thought, which I developed as a resident artist at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center.


During the UN Climate Change Conference (COP15) in Copenhagen in December 2008, a collaboration venue for artists and climate activist groups was constructed to invite individuals to play “GOOD COP”. With access to the conference site growing increasingly restricted, GOOD COP aimed to make individual voices heard during the critical week of negotiations. The public was invited to come voice their own statements on the GOOD COP stage.
